Really disappointed - the consistency was less than a thin syrup no matter what I did. So added in a tbs of cornflour while the motor was going along with half a cup of milk. Blended it, tipped into a jug and then warmed it 20 seconds twice in microwave, stirring well in between. That was much, much better.

Great for that Sunday morning brunch with the family. Eggs Benedict. Use the egg whites to make a pavlova.

'Easy' hollandaise sauce?

Over an hour of a wasted Sunday morning (and a bit of the afternoon) would suggest otherwise.

This recipe produced a yellow liquid the consistency of and appearance of the Manawatu River in the wintertime - minus the logs and floating cattle beasts with their legs sticking up in the air. Additions of cornflour, milk, extra stirring and at ( as a last resort) some chia seeds all failed to rescue this recipe from its watery grave. The next step will be to add bits of cardboard from a shoe box I have lying - and finallly, to add the shoes themselves.

5 Stars if you have an hour on Sunday to spend on this recipe whilst entertaining dogs and small children with your growing frustration.
