Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a bunt pan and set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together baking soda, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and cloves and set aside. In a large bowl combine oil and sugar. Add in eggs on at a time beating well after each addition. Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture, alternating with pumpkin puree until all is well combined. Batter will be thick. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning over onto plate.
