Tips and Suggestions
I would suggest letting these babies sit for at least an hour. I thought the texture was better and the "heat" from the sauce was calmer the longer they sat and even the next day. I briefly warmed them up--maybe 30 seconds in the microwave--before serving.
Wash, then separate your cauliflower head into florets.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, water, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper until well mixed. Now for the weird part: coat the cauliflower florets as best you can without letting them get too thick with the paste. It may look strange but trust me, it works!
Apply a cooking spray generously to a non-stick aluminum foil or parchment-lined cookie sheet and spread your battered cauliflower evenly on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn over and cook another 15 minutes.
Meantime, mix the hot sauce and butter in a bowl and pour over the cooked florets, making sure each is coated well with the sauce. Return to the oven for 10 minutes. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
