Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour bundt cake pan. In a large bowl with a wire whisk, combine first set of ingredients. In a small bowl, combine last set of ingredients.

Notes in the Margin:

* You may substitute any combination of those spices according to taste as long as they equal 3 teaspoons. Pumpkin Pie or Apple Pie Spice may also be substituted.
** I also topped my cake with a few toasted pecans. I always do this when I'm taking a cake some place and I'm not going to be there while it's eaten. This way people are alerted to the fact that there are nuts in the cake.
