Instructions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Generously grease and flour 12 mini bundt pan cups or large muffin cups. Combine oil and sugar in a large bowl and beat with a wire whisk until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each egg. In another bowl sift together flour, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture and blend well.

They should be very golden brown and toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before removing onto a wire rack to cool. During the last 10 minutes of baking time make the glaze. Melt the butter in a saucepan and then stir in sugars. Add vanilla and cream stirring well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour glaze over warm cakes. Serve warm or cold. Can be reheated.
