How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

- Blend pumpkin, sugar, oil, and eggs in large mixing bowl.
- Into another large bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices.
- Add the dry to the wet and incorporate well, making sure to scrape the bowl, until well blended and smooth.
- Pour the batter into the greased and floured bundt pans.
- Bake around an hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until cake is 165 degrees in the middle and tests clean.
- The top will be golden and the sides will pull away slightly.
- The top should be firm to the touch and bounce back when gently pressed in.
- Allow cakes to cool for 5 minutes before releasing from pans.
- Cool completely before icing.
