‘World’s Easiest’ Mayonnaise

I got the idea for this mayonnaise off one of my favourite cooks, Annabel Langbein. She Da Bomb! **POW!!** (Insert: nerdy fan girl who uses such outdated terms as “da bomb” aka: Bree May)

The only trick to this mayo is using a long, deep jar (I use a fowlers preserving jar) and a high speed stick blender – it will probably work in a nutri-bullet too (but I’ve never tried it so don’t quote me).

UPDATED NOTE TO EVERYONE 27/6/16: You may now quote me… It will not work in a nutri-bullet.

It is so freakin easy, you will be completely amazed. I use this as a dressing base for coleslaw and potato salad, I also like to add other flavourings like dill, lime and chilli. It will thicken in the fridge.

2 whole extra large free range Eggs
1 ½ cups of neutral vegetable oil
One lemon, zested and juiced
1 heaped tsp Dijon Mustard
Salt and White Pepper to taste


Note: This recipe will make 2 cups of Mayonnaise

  1. Place all of the mayonnaise ingredients into your jar. Place the stick blender into the jar and whiz at high speed. The mayonnaise will come together instantly, and I promise you will be completely amazed and in awe of it. Season well with salt and white pepper and it’s ready to use.
  2. *** Tip - This mayonnaise can be stored for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.

    Nutribullet won't work.

      'Tis true Michael! I have since tried it in my nutri bullet - and forgot to update my recipe tips, sorry everyone!! It does emulsify, but it won't be thick. The nutribullet is handy if you want to make a mayonnaise based salad dressing... Otherwise, stick with the old school stick blender. Bree :)

    Hi Bree I just wanted to thank you for posting this recipe. I have some dietary issues and with some adaptions I have finally been able to make a perfect mayonnaise!

    So after reading your recipe and seeing that nutribullets won't work I got very discouraged as that's all I have. Still, I already had the ingredients so I thought I may as well try. I have the nutra ninja type and used the big pitcher attachment with the whipping spinner. Since the pitcher type opens at the top, I could keep that little flap open at the front and slowly add my olive oil over ~3min. For my first try I got the creamiest most flaverful mayo I have ever had in my life! No more omega 6 laden soybean oil for me in the storebought kind! Here's the aftermath with the stuff I used; http://imgur.com/a/wUGAa And the end result; http://imgur.com/a/RTuPX (should note I used 1 egg and 1 cup of light tasting olive oil)

    It totally worked 100% in a Nutri Ninja Bullet though :) Amazing recipe. Thank you!

    wow, what an article! Thank you so much! I am completely out of touch, tried making mayonnaise using a portable hand mixer. Even after about 10 minutes the thickest I could get was like a ridiculous runny cake mix. No one said that a spinner was needed, I didn't know what it was, can't wait to get one and to try again.

    .."stick blender", I meant, or, "spinner" attachment as said in another comment.

      This is seriously the easiest way to make it. The trick is plunging the stick blender into the mayo. Let me know how you go! Bree :)
