Cauliflower cheese

I don't think that will get you the result you want. If you have no other flour types in the kitchen (pancake, cake flour, maizena, etc) you could grind (very fine) a few tablespoons of dry chickpeas and use that as a substitute.
The shops are open you could go and buy some :)

you can thicken a sauce using creamed potato, you can either do this by boiling a potato, mashing it and adding milk, then whisk it until it is the same sort of consitancy as a can use instant mash potato flakes or granules which is easier.

use this mixture in the same way you would flour to thicken the butter and cheese mixture. it should result in a nice thick sauce.

Or, forget the sauce, boil the cauli until it's very tender. grate the cheese and slice an onion if you have one. put the cauli in a dish and sprinkle the rest on the top. Add any herbs you may happen to have, some black pepper is also good

stick it in the oven and you will have a lovely cheesy herby cauliflower bake with nice roasted onion. A great side dish or a main one if you serve it with some bread, rice or pasta
If you have Semoule (Semolina) or Maizena (Cornflour) is your cupboard, these may be substituted for flour - same quantities.
Equal parts Cheddar, mozzarella and Stilton, lots of salt and black pepper and partially steamed cauli. Mix well, bit of the cheese on top and under the grill for ten minutes.

P.S. Egg? For a cheese sauce? FFS!
Couple of pickled eggs for afters then a follow through while trying to force a trouser cough for the missus. Guaranteed crowd pleaser.

The finished article.My present wife announced it was the best ever cauliflower cheese she has ever eaten.
I have now bought flour for future use.
