|18 min.||5 min.||23 min.|
|1||Melt 150 g butter, then remove from heat.||5 min.|
|2||Prepare a bain-marie and in the top bowl put 2 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons water, salt and pepper.||5 min.|
|3||On the bain-marie, beat egg yolks and water until getting a smooth and creamy mixture...||7 min.|
|4||...which "sticks" to whisk when you remove it from the bowl.
Beat until sauce reaches this stage.
|5||As soon the "sticking" stage is reached, pour melted butter a little at a time into the mixture, while beating continuously.||5 min.|
|6||When all the butter is added, finish by adding 2 tablespoons lemon juice, while still beating.||1 min.|
|7||Taste to check seasoning, and if there is enough lemon. If not, add some more lemon juice, then beat a little more to mix thoroughly.
Your Hollandaise sauce is ready, it can wait a short while, covered in the bain-marie, off the heat.
What's happened? Probably your sauce needed more water, in other words the very small volume of water eventually evaporates due to the heat and beating, and without this water your sauce collapses (same as your morale - have you noticed?).
What can I do? You can try to recover the sauce by removing bowl from bain-marie, add 2 tablespoons of cold water, and start to beat again. This is not a totally sure method, but it usually works.
