    2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt (Aly used a little more)
    1/4 teaspoon ground clove (Aly used a little more
    and ground it from whole cloves)
    2 cups canned pumpkin (Original recipe called for
    1 15-ounce can -- about 1-3/4 cups)
    1 cup vegetable oil
    4 beaten eggs
    1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
