Ancient Roman Cheesecake (Savillum)
I was hoping for a thicker dessert like a New York Style Cheesecake, but this came out with more of an omelet-like (flat) appearance. I don't know if it would have cooked properly if the recipe had been doubled, but that might be an option. 15 bay leaves make its presentation very interesting to the eye, but they add way too strong a flavor - overpowering in my opinion. If pre-slicing for entertaining, cut your slices SMALL or no one will finish theirs! It stuck like Elmer's Glue to my springform pan, but the paring knife helped and it released with some gentle scraping effort... so looks pretty good (I'll add a photo since there isn't one presently). My daughter needed an "Ancient Roman Dessert" for a Latin Classical League (high school) party, and this is the only one that I could find on Sure hope the teenagers eat it ...and if they accidently eat a bay leaf, they won't get a shock because the entire dessert tastes like one anyway! :) Can anyone upload another "Ancient Roman Dessert" to give readers more options to choose from?
