Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a bundt pan… I highly recommend Nordic Ware 12-cup Bundt Pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine sugar and oil. Blend until combined.
Add eggs one at a time, beat after each addition.
This is what you should have.
In a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients… flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt. Stir.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.
Then the pumpkin. Mix. Alternate between the egg mixture and pumpkin beating after each addition.
Pour batter into Bundt pan.
Into the oven for 60 – 65 minutes.
Allow the cake to cool.
