Grease a 12-inch round baking dish.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Add the cauliflower and cook until just tender but still firm, 7-8 minutes.
Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan.
Gradually whisk in the flour until thoroughly blended and cook until hot and bubbling.
Gradually add the milk.
Bring to a boil and continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thick.
Remove from the heat and stir in the shredded cheese.
Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
Place the bay leaves on the bottom of the prepared dish.
Arrange the cauliflower florets on top in an even layer.
Pour the cheese sauce evenly over the cauliflower.
Bake until browned, about 20-25 minutes.
