Generously butter an 8 inch cake pan and set aside.
Combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, jalapeno pepper and cayenne in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, yogurt and butter. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the bread. Let sit for 15 minutes and cut into wedges and serve.
