How to Make Hollandaise Sauce

Use clarified butter with the lemon juice for the best hollandaise.

Recipe By: Julia (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/371)
Serves 3-4 Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Egg yolks 2
Salt & pepper as required
Lemon juice 1/2
Water 2 tbsp
Butter 80g

Method

1
Put all the ingredients except the butter into a bowl and in a bain marie (over a bowl of boiling water).
2
Whisk the mixture patiently. After 5-6 minutes, the egg yolks will start to firm up and the mixture will get heavier.
3
Add the clarified butter a bit at a time (microwave the butter for 30 seconds and use the top clear liquid, leaving the solids behind). Keep whisking as you add the butter, keeping the bowl on the bain marie.
4

Tips & Note

If you use vinegar instead of the lemon juice, and oil instead of clarified butter, you will get a good mayonnaise. If you're successful at this hollandaise, the mayonnaise will be just as easy!
