The stewed rhubarb cooked in the thermomix will be more of a puree.
To get the fruit to stay in more whole pieces cook the stewed fruit ingredients in a saucepan until the sugar is disolved and fruit is soft.
Serve a warm slice with the stewed fruit and cream.

Use a microplane to zest the lemon rind.
