Two-Minute Mayonnaise

Problems recreating this? I've been there!

I had the problems I've seen a few others had, with the result being a eggy soup thing. Not pleasant. I knew that there must be a problem on my end. I tried slooowllly drizzling oil, measuring exactly to the recipe, etc. Nothing worked, cups of oil lost.
Then I changed containers. I used the glass two cup Pyrex measuring cup, perfect results. I was going for a really snug fit and I think that caused a vortex after a certain point of the emulsion that messed it up. A big plus is being able to measure and prepare in the same vessel. Since then I use this recipe frequently and it is another huge endorsement for owning a stick blender. So easy, uses pantry ingredients, forgiving, lot of flavoring options, etc. Basically, I won't doubt Kenji again.


Attempting these tonight. Using the microwave easy lemon curd from thekitchn for half, raspberry custard for the other.

Tried a few times so far, unsuccessful. Begins to emulsify on bottom then breaks shortly after. Thought maybe it meant I had to follow the directions more deliberately. This one, it seems, is hard for me to pull off.
