To my knowledge, regular cornmeal is ground finer than polenta corn meal. Not sure how the polenta corn meal would fare in a cornbread, but I could imagine it may be a bit too grainy!

Polenta is a very coarse grind. Your cornbread will be very "rustic" if not outwardly crunchy. Polenta needs more liquid and time to cook through.
