Tastes just like the real thing!!
2 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice (use Key Limes if you don't have lemons)
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon paprika (pimentón)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (ajo en polvo)
1 1/2 tablespoons flour or cornstarch (maicena)
1 teaspoon dry mustard (mostaza en polvo)
1/2 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons vinegar
Use a blender or electric mixer to blend egg yolks, salt, sugar, paprika, garlic and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice.
Slowly pour in 1 cup oil, a few drops at a time, mixing thoroughly.
Add remaining 1/2 cup oil a little faster and when it is thoroughly blended, gradually add the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.
Mix the flour, mustard and vinegar together in a small saucepan, but don't cook it yet. Gradually add the boiling water and mix until smooth. Cook the mixture in the saucepan on low heat just until it forms a smooth paste (don't let it get to thick).
Slowly add this hot mixture to the mayonnaise and blend well.
Pour into a container and cool in the refrigerator.
This will make about a 1/2 liter
