Begin by gathering all of your ingredients and equipment. You will need a medium-sized mixing bowl, a whisk or electric hand mixer, and measuring cups and spoons.

In the mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, mustard, vinegar or lemon juice, salt, and sugar until well combined. This step is important to ensure all the ingredients are well mixed before adding the oil.

While whisking continuously, slowly pour in the oil, starting with just a few drops at a time and gradually increasing to a steady stream. This will help the oil to emulsify with the other ingredients, creating a thick and creamy texture. Continue whisking until all the oil has been added and the mayonnaise is thick and glossy.

Taste the mayonnaise and adjust the seasoning if necessary. You can add more salt, sugar, or acid (vinegar or lemon juice) to taste.

Transfer the mayonnaise to a jar or container and refrigerate until ready to use. Homemade mayonnaise will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.


Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before beginning. This will help the mayonnaise to emulsify more easily.
Use a neutral oil such as canola or vegetable oil, as more vital flavored oils like olive oil can overpower the other ingredients.
If your mayonnaise doesn’t come together or appears thin and watery, it may have been overwhisked or the oil may have been added too quickly. Try starting again with a fresh egg yolk and whisking more slowly.
