Preheat oven to 350 degrees and liberally butter and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan.

Sift together dry ingredients (cake flour through cardamom) into medium bowl and set aside.

Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle or with beaters, cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add 1 egg at a time, beating to fully incorporate each before adding the next.

Then beat on medium-high speed for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is fluffy and light in color.

Beat in the pumpkin and vanilla to combine. Then on medium speed, add half of the buttermilk, then half of the flour mixture, allowing the batter to be fully combined each time before adding the next ingredient.

Repeat with the remaining half of the buttermilk and flour.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then gently turn the cake out onto a cooling rack and let cool completely before cutting.

Pour 1 cup of Buttermilk Syrup over the cooled cake on its serving platter and let it soak in. Right before serving, pour the remaining syrup over the cake.
