Bakelse-Jeanna (1702–1788), was a Swedish pastry-seller, the name signifying "Pastry-Jeanna". She was a well known and distinctive character in Stockholm at that time, and often used as a figure within Swedish plays, songs and literature during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Jeanna originated from Aland, and spent her life as a street seller (manglerska) of cakes in Stockholm, where she became a known local profile. She came to be included in fiction during her lifetime. She was a character in the comedy Donnerpamp by Carl Israel Hallman from 1782, as a character in a song by Bellman popular in Stockholm, and was mentioned as a minor character in many works of Swedish literature during the 19th-century.

The name "Bakelse-Jeanna" was long used in Stockholm as a name for female pastry street vendors.
