We start by separating the whites from the yolks. We peel two bananas, remove the strands, chop them and sprinkle them with the juice so that they do not turn black. We put the fruit, the yolks, the drained cottage cheese, the yogurt, the sugar and the cornstarch in the glass of the blender. We crush everything until obtaining a homogeneous mass.
We beat the egg whites until stiff and incorporate them into the previous mixture, making enveloping movements from the bottom up so that they do not lose their volume. We preheat the oven to 180ºC. Butter a round tart pan with butter, add the previous preparation and level it with a spatula.
We cook it for 40 or 50 minutes, as necessary until it sets. We remove the cake from the oven, let it warm well, remove it from the mold and let it cool completely.
We peel the other two bananas, remove the strands, cut them into slices and arrange them into slices, slightly ribbed and forming rows from the center to the edges. We heat the jam with a tablespoon of sugar, strain it and polish the surface of the cake.
