1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray two 12-count muffin pans with non-stick spray or line with cupcake liners. Set aside.


2. In a large bowl, toss the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves together until combined. Set aside.


3. In a medium bowl, whisk the brown sugar and eggs together until combined. Add the pumpkin, oil, milk, and vanilla until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do NOT overmix the batter.


4. Spoon the batter evenly into 12 cups, right up to the top is OK and will create nice tall muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
