Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Brush the inside of a 9-inch round cake pan with melted butter.
Whisk the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, cayenne and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk the milk and eggs together in a medium bowl. Pour the milk mixture into the cornmeal mixture and stir until just combined; then stir in the melted butter.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread out into an even layer. Bake until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off the excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
