 This is the cinnamon roll recipe Anne makes in Persuasion: A Latter-day Tale

Anne's Super Quick Cinnamon Rolls

Mix and let rest for fifteen minutes:
3 1/2    C         warm water
3/4       C         white sugar
            4          T          yeast

While you are waiting, complete the following:
Preheat oven to 425°.  Grease all pans (Anne uses cookie sheets or 9" x 13" pans, but you can use any pans you have.)  Melt one cube of margarine or butter.  Soak raisins in water for about five minutes.  Make cinnamon sugar mixture (2 T to 1 C sugar).

To yeast mixture, add:

        1 T salt
        3 eggs
        1 C oil

Gradually add:
     10 C flour

Mix well.  Roll dough into an oblong shape on a floured surface.  Spread with melted margarine or butter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and top with raisins, if desired.  Shape into rolls by rolling from the long side and cutting in one-inch wide pieces.  Place in greased pans with sides of rolls just touching.  Let rise about 15 minutes.  Bake at 425° for 10 - 15 minutes.  Rolls should be lightly brown on top and the bottoms should be just starting to brown.


In a small pan, place:

1/2  square       margarine or butter
1/3  C              milk
Heat until hot but not burning.

Remove from heat and add:
1/2  t                vanilla
1    lb.  powdered sugar


  1. Awesome! These would be yummy to have at your book signing! No pressure, just saying (hehe). So excited for you! Wishing you much success!

  2. Thanks, Mary Ann. Probably a little too sticky for the bookstore though.

  3. How did you know I have been craving cinnamon rolls (and hot chocolate)? So far I have convinced myself to not make them so that I can stay under my calorie goal . . . but this doesn't help! Hope they are as good as Annette's recipe - I still have to convince her to give it to me. Once a year cinnamon rolls from the fundraiser just aren't enough.

  4. I would love to win a copy of your new book. It sounds like a great new read.

  5. Don't forget! I am also posting my review on Friday Feb 4th! At:


  6. Best of luck with your blog roll... I'm sure it's a lot of work but totally worth it. Thanks for sharing the recipe... I love cinnamon rolls:)

  7. Rebecca,
    I am the tour host for Superbowl Sunday, I have included a link to your page, but I would also like to include your Cinnamon Roll recipe (yum).
    Loved your book!
