breakfast with liz lange

May 6th, 2011

Last week, I had the pleasure of heading over to Liz Lange’s beautiful apartment so she could show me some of her (and her kids’) favorite breakfast recipes.  Liz was so lovely and her apartment was seriously amazing — decorated by Jonathan Adler, it’s the kind of place that feels impeccable and totally liveable at the same time. 

And in honor of Mother’s Day, she shared this awesome pancake recipe!  She keeps a jar of pre-made dry pancake mix (would make a cute gift, too!) so that she can cook off the mix during the week for breakfasts.  Such a smart idea — I always forget how easy it is to make pancakes and waffles, but really they’re such an inexpensive and delicious brunch dish!  And even better when you add blueberries or chocolate chips.

How are you guys celebrating Mother’s Day?  I’m heading home to my parents’ for the weekend and really looking forward to getting out of the city for a bit!  And maybe Calvin and Coco will give me some extra kisses on Sunday night too?

Liz Lange’s Pancake Mix


For the Mix:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

To Cook:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 large egg


For the mix, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Repeat for as much mix as you want to make at once.  Store at room temperature until ready to use.

To make the pancakes, whisk together milk, butter and egg.  Add 1 1/4 of the dry ingredient mixture to the milk mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not overmix).  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium, and cook 2-3tbsp at a time per pancake.  Heat until golden brown, flip, and brown the other side (4-5 minutes total).  Serve warm.

    Looks yummy! I’ll definitely try this recipe. The couch behind the lovely ottoman, I have the same couch!!! Never thought of adding this color but it looks crisp and cool to eyes, great for summer. I’m off to the store to find this color scheme. Pillows, etc.

    Hi, I just happened upon your blog via Pinterest & I love it.  Those framed Vogue covers are adorably chic but what I am drawn to most is that oh so lovely tufted ottoman.  I love~love turquoise and have been looking for a sofa sectional in that beautiful color & soft velvet fabric for quite awhile.  Can you share with me where you purchased the ottoman and perhaps that will lead me to the sofa of my dreams?  You have FANTABULOUS style and I’m so envious of your posh NYC pad…YOU GO GIRL~~~ : )

    @gghie: You can find beautiful velvet pillows in tons of fab colors @ Pier I…I bought turquoise velvet pillows that look identical to hers there and I love them because they are not only colorful & beautiful but soft & durable…I am totally obsessed with cushy pillows and I am like a kid in the candy store when I go to Pier I…Their add says; “find what speaks to you” Well EVERYTHING does! lol Happy Hunting!!! : )
