This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

My recipe of the day is for Blueberry Rhubarb Quick Bread for Spring Sweets Week. I was lucky enough to get some rhubarb on my last trip   to the farm market before I got holed  up here at home.

Combined with some  fresh blueberries and a little bit of spice and a crunchy sugar topping  it turned out very nice. I’ll be enjoying it for a few days with my morning coffee.

We’ll keep the extra in the fridge to keep  it fresher longer.

Anolon Baking Pan  from Our Sponsor

This bread I made in a baking  pan that Anolon sent me. It has very nice silicone handles and is nonstick. You’ll see I lined with parchment but only to lift the bread out easily. The parts that touched the loaf from the pan didn’t stick at all.

It’s nicer than most pans  I have seen for  sale.
