Cornmeal Hoecakes

['1 cup all-purpose flour', '2/3 cup coarse-grind cornmeal', '2 tablespoons sugar', '1/2 teaspoon kosher salt', '1/4 teaspoon baking powder', '1 large egg', '1 large egg white', '1 1/4 cups milk', '1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted; plus 2 teaspoons room temperature', 'Sour cream and sliced scallions (for serving)', 'Flaky sea salt']

Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, kosher salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Whisk egg, egg white, and milk in another medium bowl to combine. Mix egg mixture into cornmeal mixture just to incorporate, then stir in melted butter.
Heat 1 tsp. butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium, swirling pan to coat bottom. Spoon in half of batter and cook until bubbles appear on top, about 3 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until hoecake is set, about 3 minutes. Return skillet to stovetop, turn cake over with a spatula, and cook over medium heat until cake feels firm when pressed, about 2 minutes. Turn out onto a plate and repeat process with remaining batter and 1 tsp. butter to make a second cake.
Serve hoecakes topped with sour cream and scallions and sprinkled with sea salt.
