Pumpkin Muffins

I looked for a recipe online but didn't find any I really liked so I pieced together my own. These turned out great and I doubled it and made two loaves of pumpkin bread(no pictures) with pecans in those. For the tupperware spice you can just use cinnamon. (made these again 9-3-10 and I think this is too much spice.  I'll cut them all in half next time)

Pumpkin muffins
1 15oz can pumpkin
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, tupperware spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together pumpkin, vegetable oil and eggs.
Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
