Homemade Bread Strikes Back: Rise of the Machines 

As food prices rise, people are baking bread at home more than they have been in recent years.

The New York Times reports that U.S. bread machine sales were a whopping $42 million in 2022, and manufacturers like Hamilton Beach had to increase production to keep up with rising demand.

If you want to save money on groceries and make your own delicious bread, these TikToks will help you start your breadmaking journey.

To get started, you’ll need a machine. Bread machines range widely in price. The more expensive options can cost triple digits, but you can find a perfectly usable secondhand machine in thrift stores or Facebook groups.

Ten dollars for endless loaves of warm, homemade bread? Not the worst deal!

Once you have your machine, start with this simple recipe for mini hamburger buns. TikToker Kaelahe demonstrates that it’s possible to start the dough in the breadmaker, then finish by baking it in an oven.


LETS MAKE SOME MINI SESAME BURGER BUNS 🍔 I just used my challah dough recipe 😂 I forgot to halve it, so it should be 1/2 cup warm water, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp honey, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp salt, ~2 cups flour, 1 1/8 tsp bread machine yeast. They ended up baking for like 15 ish mins at 350F. • • • • #breadmachine #breadmachinerecipe #burgerbun #bakewithme bake with me, bread machine recipe , cook with me, family dinner, family meal, #familydinner #familymeal #toddlerfood #toddlermom toddler food

Too complicated? CookFastEatWell demonstrates a straightforward process in which the whole recipe is mixed and baked right in the bread maker.

Just pop out the loaf for slicing, and it’s sandwich time.

Once you’re feeling confident with simple loaves, your options open up. Below, Foodie Fred shows how to make fresh pizza dough with a Zojirushi bread maker.
