Grease the pan! I thought that since this was compared to angel food cake, and since the recipe did not state this, you didn't need to grease the pan. Grease the pan! :) I used half the amount of sugar. Great with strawberries (with sugar and the juice that comes from that) and whipped cream.
My family enjoyed this! I have always been nervous about making fried chicken, mostly because of the mess with splattered grease. I did not have that problem because the chicken was not fried for very long. Next time I will cut the amount of garlic powder in half.
Made this GLUTEN FREE. It is so good! Our family is gluten free, so I used a gluten-free flour mix (one that's sold as a bread baking mix--it does not have yeast in it) in place of the flour. I used the chocolate syrup instead of the liqueur, and added an extra spoon of instant coffee to the coffee/water/choc syrup mixture to make it extra-mocha-y. It is FANTASTIC.
