Homemade Mayonnaise

Home » Recipes » Homemade Mayonnaise

This is a tried and tested recipe of mine, that my family love!


2 eggs

45 ml white vinegar

10 ml white sugar

5 ml salt

Black pepper to taste

500-600 ml canola oil


Into a running blender add everything except the oil. Mix well.

With the blender still running add the oil starting with a slow drizzle to a steady stream.

This is a relatively bland mayonnaise so if you want you can adjust it easily. I make double and keep 1 jar of bland and then add the other flavours into separate jars for the rest.

This is a thick mayonnaise which you can thin by adding a little hot water, milk, yoghurt, cream or sour cream.

To make a peri-naise add a little peri peri (not more than 2,5 ml)

To make garlic mayonnaise add 1-2 crushed garlic cloves

You can also use 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 lemon juice for another delicious taste.
