Heat oven to 375° and place 12 paper liners into each well of a 12-cup standard sized muffin baking pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, cloves, and nutmeg. Stir with a whisk to break up clumps.
In a separate smaller bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, oil, and vanilla extract. Stir with the same whisk until combined together well.
Dump the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together with a wooden spoon or spatula just until combined and no flour pockets remain in the batter.
Fill each muffin nearly full with pumpkin muffin batter. You want it slightly below the tops of the muffin liners. Depending on the size of the cupcake liners/baking dish, you can get 12-15 muffins from this recipe.
Cook for 20-22 minutes. The tops will be nicely puffy and domed and they should look done. When you touch the top lightly it should spring back up.
Let cool or eat one warm with butter!
