Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Whisk the flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk, milk, and eggs. Stir in the baking soda.
Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredients; stir to combine. Melt half of the butter, then slowly pour this into the batter, stirring to incorporate.
Set a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining butter and let it melt. Pour the batter into the hot skillet and smooth the top with a spatula.
Cook for 2 minutes, then place the pan into the preheated oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
