15 mins to prep

30 mins to bake

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray.

  2. Step 2

    To make the batter, whisk together the flour and seasonings in a medium bowl. Add milk and combine until smooth. (Add up to 1/4 cup additional milk if you feel the need to thin the batter!)

  3. Step 3

    Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter, thoroughly coating, and shaking off the excess. Place the battered cauliflower on the baking tray, making sure they aren’t overlapping.

  4. Step 4

    Bake the cauliflower for 20 minutes or until just golden.

  5. Step 5

    Meanwhile to make the ‘honey’ sauce, mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.

  6. Step 6

    Remove cauliflower from oven and drizzle about half the sauce over the florets, shuffling them around to roughly coat them in the sauce. Pop them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes until they’re golden brown and crisping on the edges.

  7. Step 7

    When the cauliflower is cool enough to touch, place all of them in a large bowl or deep serving plate. Drizzle the rest of the sauce over the cauliflower and gently toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately — as a snack on their own, or alongside rice for dinner!

Hot tip!

Your cauliflower needs to be dry for the batter to stick to it. If you feel the need to rinse your cauliflower before using it, make sure it’s completely dried before Step 3!
