• egg
  • seed oil
  • lemon
  • salt
  • mustard (optional)

This will be a very quick and trivial post, but I assure you it will be also very useful. And, if this is not enough, the recipe is very easy and the result delicious.

Too much very in a single phrase?! Believe me, they’re not too much!

Some time ago I read this  post on Trattoria da Martina blog, on how to make a mayonnaise in 30 seconds, so I had to try. I took my hand mixer (necessary for this recipe) and I tried it, using a stopwatch and, I have to say it, it won’t take 30 seconds…. it will take 20 seconds!

So, following these simple directions, you’ll have a creamy and stiff home-made mayonnaise, perfect for any use.

Seriously, it took a lot more time taking the picture than making the mayonnaise!

I throw down the guantlet!

Home-made mayonnaise


  • Prep: 1 min



  1. In the glass of your hand mixer pour the ingredients IN THIS ORDER: egg (don’t break the egg yolk), seed oil, lemon juice (or vinegar), salt and mustard (optional).
  2. Insert the hand mixer and let it touch the bottom of the glass.
  3. Run it to the maximum speed and for the first 10 seconds don’t move it: you’ll se, on the bottom, the mixture starting to become mayonnaise.
  4. Now start to move up and down the hand mixer until you have a perfect stiff mayonnaise.
  5. It will be ready in 20 to 30 seconds.
