Plaited yeast loaf with rhubarb and oatmeal crumble


Such a plaited yeast loaf with rhubarb is in the warm weather just delicious. Another advantage is that you get rid of the last rhubarb that may still be in the fridge. But we still have it after the rhubarb season, because we always have a stock of it in the freezer. So you can also make the rest of the summer great rhubarb pies and dishes. For example, for the next barbecue a delicious rhubarb BBQ sauce.
