  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter slowly melted
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Salt to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper to taste


  • Melt the butter slowly in a small saucepan. Try not to let it boil because you want the moisture in the butter to remain there and not steam away.
  • While the butter is slowly melting, blend the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper in a blender or with an immersion blender.
  • Blend for about 20-30 seconds or until lightened in color.
  • The friction from the blender blades will heat up the yolks a little bit while the blending will add air into the hollandaise, which makes it lighter.
  • Turn the blender down to its very lowest speed and slowly drizzle in the melted butter while the blender is running.
  • Continue to blend for a few seconds to make sure the butter is fully combined.
  • Taste and add more lemon or salt if desired.
  • Pour into serving container and store in a warm place until used.
  • You can also place the serving container into a shallow bowl of hot water to help keep it warm.
  • Use within the hour.
