- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
- 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup (240ml) milk
- 1 cup (240ml) buffalo sauce
- 2 tablespoons melted butter (optional, for extra richness)

- Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.

- Return the coated cauliflower to the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and caramelized.
- Remove from the oven and let the cauliflower cool slightly before serving.
