Pineapple Carrot Upside-Down Cake

The recipe I’m about to share with you is not fat-free.  It isn’t gluten-free, dairy-free or egg-free.  It will not fit into a paleo diet, nor one based on avoiding canned food.  It is not vegan or sugarless.  However, it is delicious, and as long as you’re not restricted by any of the above, I highly recommend you indulge in it at least once.

This cake is dense and sweet, so a little goes a long way.  The carrots and pineapple are tasty together.  When you taste it hot out of the oven and think it can’t get any better, let it sit for a few hours and think again.  I think this will be repeated as our Easter dessert.  I just need to find a can with 11 pineapple rings in it.

Pineapple Carrot Upside Down Cake - Crafty Staci 1

Pineapple Carrot Upside-Down Cake

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 20-ounce can pineapple slices
  • 10 – 12 maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups finely shredded carrots

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Melt the 1/3 cup of butter in a 12” oven-safe skillet.  Sprinkle the 3/4 cup of brown sugar over the butter.  Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice.  Arrange the pineapple slices on top of the brown sugar, adding a cherry to the center of each.

Combine the remaining butter and sugars in a mixing bowl.  Add milk, pineapple juice and egg.  Mix well.  Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Mix on low for 30 seconds to combine, then on high for one minute.  Pour into the skillet over the pineapple.

Bake 45 – 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Immediately flip the skillet over onto a heat-proof plate.  Strong muscles help for this step.

Leave the skillet in place for a few minutes.

Remove the skillet, slice and serve.

I think some coconut would make this even better, but not everyone in my house agrees.  It wasn’t exactly difficult to get anyone to eat it just the way it is.

Friday Favorites–Carrots

You know how most people have a certain food or two that they just can’t tolerate?  That one that you can’t even eat to be nice?  My big one: cooked carrots.  I can manage if they’re minced up small and mixed with other stuff, but plain – there’s just no way.  Taste, texture, it’s the whole package.  Oddly, I like them raw and even more weird, I love carrot cake.  Fortunately, there are many ways to enjoy the beauty of a carrot without having to choke one down all by itself.

I’ve seen many versions of carrot-in-dirt cupcakes lately, but these Carrot Top Cupcakes from Hungry Happenings seems the easiest to actually pull off.  For those of us who are not naturally talented cake decorators at least.

When I switched to K-cups a while back, I was left with part of a Costco-sized package of coffee filters.  These Coffee Filter Carrots from Urban Comfort would be a great way to use a few up.

This Carrot Cake Fudge from Inside Bru Crew Life looks fabulous.  Anyone know where to find the Carrot Cake M & M’s?

These little Thread Spool Carrots from Crafts by Courtney are made using washi tape, but lots of other crafts supplies would work if you can’t find it in orange.

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf

I told you about my new tank on Monday.  Well, the fabric was too pretty to only buy a tiny bit, so I went with a whole yard.  I didn’t have a plan, I just caved to the siren’s call of yet another piece of fabric that I couldn’t ignore but probably didn’t need.  My husband, standing next to me at the cutting counter, didn’t even try to stop me.  Poor guy knows better.  But it all worked out in the end, because now I have this:

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 1

Cut a piece of fabric 24” wide by the width of the fabric, 58” in my case.

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 2

Fold with the right sides together, matching the long edges. Start stitching 2” from the end with a 1/4” seam.  Stop 2” from the other end.  I only left 1” and it made the rest of the steps a little more difficult.  If your fabric is thick you might want to even go 3 or 4”.  Press the seam to one side.

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 3

Turn the scarf right side out.  With right sides together, match up the two short edges.  Stitch together with a 1/4” seam.

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 4

Turn right side out, so the seams pull inside the scarf.  There should be a small opening where the seams intersect, like this:

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 5

Stitch the opening closed by hand and you’re done.

Easy Floral Infinity Scarf - Crafty Staci 6

By using the width of the fabric, this is the perfect length to loop around my neck twice.  It looks great with my new tank and, for now, a jacket.

See, I did need that fabric after all!  Right?

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank

I’m an Oregon girl, born and raised.  I generally take the seasons in stride, waiting patiently for the sun to peek out when it’s good and ready.  This year is a little different.  Granted, we didn’t have the relentless winter they had back east, but it still felt long and cold.  I am beyond ready for spring.  If it won’t come to me, I’m going to try summoning it with my wardrobe.  Yes, my toes are a little chilly in my sandals today, but I’m optimistic.  Maybe this tank will do the trick.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 1

This started as a simple, unembellished pink tank from Old Navy and a piece of lightweight knit fabric.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 2

Measure the distance you’d like the fabric to overlap onto the front.  In my case, that was 1/2”.  Multiply that number by 3, then add 1/2”.  You’ll also need to measure the arm and neck holes, adding about 3 or 4” to each.  In my case, I cut two pieces that were 2 by 24” for the arms and one 2 by 35” for the neck.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 3

Fold one end of a strip about 1/4” to the wrong side, then line up the edge with the arm hole.  Stitch away from the edge the distance of your original measurement, 1/2” for me.  Be sure to use a stretch or knit stitch so your openings will still stretch.  Continue all the way around until you cover the fold where you started.  Cut off the excess strip.  Repeat for the other arm.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 4

Press the trim away from the tank.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 5

Fold the trim over the edge to the inside of the tank.  Make sure it covers the stitching line.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 6

From the front, stitch all the way around close to the fold as shown below.

Adding Floral Trim to a Basic Tank - Crafty Staci 7

Repeat the process for the neck.

Doesn’t this top doesn’t look like spring?

Is is just me, or are there a ridiculous number of really cute Easter crafts and recipes out there this year?  I’m going to blame Pinterest for that one, because it seems like ever since it rolled into town there’s just more of everything.  Especially food.  Seriously, can we all agree to stop posting delicious-looking things late in the evening when I’m trying not to snack?

This Peeps Garland from Pillows A La Mode makes me think of paper dolls.  Or paper bunnies, in this case.

Love me some Nutter Butters.  That’s why you’ll find none of them in my house.  However, after seeing these cute Nutter Bunnies from Plain Chicken, I might have to go out and buy some.

These Hungry Bunnies from Lil Blue Boo look like they were modeled after a well-loved stuffed animal.

Bunnies don’t always have to be sweet.  Check out these Easter Bunny Stuffed Eggs from My Fudo.

Numbers 0–9 for Coffee Sleeve

Today is a great example of why I appreciate your comments so much.  Last week I posted the pattern for my Coffee Sleeve of the Month for March, which I called Class of ‘14.  It had the numbers 1 and 4 in the design to commemorate this year’s graduating class.  But one of my readers wanted to use it for something else.  Maybe she’s making one for her brother with his favorite athlete’s number and team colors or one for a friend to celebrate her 29th birthday for the tenth time.  The point is, she needed more than a 1 and a 4.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci

Because of the way I originally designed the pattern, it was easy to replace the numbers, so I sat down and mapped out everything from 0 to 9.  You can download the set here.  Be sure to print it at full scale so the numbers will match the available space on the pattern.

Each page looks like this:

Zero and One

It shows the number as it will look finished, the reversed number (how it will look while you’re working with it) and the pattern for actually sewing the numbers.  Some numbers, like the 0, can be sewn as one piece so they are simply numbered.  Others need to be sewn as two pieces, an A section and a B section, then A and B are sewn together.

The numbers can be plugged into the design in the areas shown in red below.  Keep in mind your design is reversed, so place your numbers accordingly.

You can download a PDF of this here, or visit the original tutorial and use the pattern there.

My thanks to Linda for asking for these!

Friday Favorites–Building a Foundation

Since I’ve been talking about foundation piecing all week, it seemed appropriate to end the week with some beautiful projects I’ve come across in my research.  I just love how this technique makes something fairly easy to put together look like it took a month to create.  I won’t tell you if won’t.

I think I found what I didn’t even know my sewing room was missing – this sweet quilt block from Charise Creates.

Since I live in the forest, I have a thing for the furry residents around here.  I wonder if the bears would appreciate this Bear Cub from Whims and Fancies.

This Red Herring Block from Quiet Play is a good example of how paper piecing makes very skinny pieces possible.

Paper piecing can also make curves a bit less intimidating, like the ones in this Scrappy Potholder from Fairy Face Designs.

Do you say pop or soda?  I understand it’s regional, but while I once called it pop, being married to a soda guy for over 20 years quietly converted me.  Whatever you call it, this Pop Bottle Curtain from Sew Take a Hike is just cute.

Tell me, have you tried foundation piecing?  What was your experience like?  I think I’m hooked!

Coffee Sleeve of the Month–Class of ‘14

It came to my attention after I wrote this that you might be interested in using numbers other than 1 and 4, especially if you’ve found this after we’ve moved past the class of ’14.  You can find all of the numbers, 0 – 9, here which can be plugged into the design in any combination you’d like!

 

My baby is graduating from high school this spring.  I’m having a hard time wrapping my brain around that idea.  It seems like yesterday he was playing with Hot Wheels and wishing he could be Buzz Lightyear, and now we’re talking about college and career.  But whether I’m ready for it or not, it’s happening, so I’m trying to get onboard.  I’m starting with a coffee cup sleeve, commemorating his graduating class.  This one is going to his school as part of a giveaway for seniors who’ve completed their financial aid applications, but make it in their school colors and it would be a great gift for any graduate.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 1

This is where all that information on foundation paper piecing that I shared on Monday is going to come in handy.  If you didn’t get a chance to go over it, at the very least watch Crafty Gemini’s video before digging into this project.

As with every coffee sleeve before it, you’ll need fabric, InsulBrite, elastic cord and a button.  You’ll also need to print one copy of this pattern, which includes three pages.  The full sleeve pattern is included twice, because you’ll need two of them.  The labels on the pieces are shown in red for the parts that should be a contrasting color, represented in yellow on my project.  Be sure you print at full size.

We’re going to start by making the numbers.  Cut each of the numbers apart on the pattern.  I like to start by cutting out a larger-than-necessary piece of fabric for each piece I’ll be sewing.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 2

To start, place piece A1 on the wrong side of the pattern with the wrong side of the fabric facing the paper.  You can hold it up to a light source to make sure it’s placed correctly.  Ignore the backward letters on my pattern pieces.  I was working from the rough draft when I made my sleeve.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 3

Add the next piece, which will be A2, with right sides of the fabric facing each other and enough overlap on the sewing line for a 1/4” seam.  This is the back side of the pattern.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 4

Reduce the stitch size on your machine to around 1 1/4 – 1 1/2.  Stitch on the front of the pattern along the line, overstitching by a bit on each end.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 5

Fold the pattern back along the stitching and cut the seam allowance to 1/4”.  Some people feel like this step is optional, but it keeps everything a little neater and less confusing for me.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 6

With a dry iron, press piece A2 back.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 7

Repeat the process with pieces A3 and A4.  Cut around the piece along the outer edge of the pattern, which leaves a 1/4” seam allowance all the way around.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 8

And it should look something like this.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 9

Sew the B pieces together the same way, then attach section A to section B.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 10

Now that you have the 1 finished, complete the 4 the same way.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 11

Beginning with the 1, treat it as your first piece on the full coffee sleeve pattern.  Place it carefully and accurately.  Continue with the next pieces, which will be C and D.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 12

Add the remaining pieces through F, then add M to the end.  Set the entire piece aside.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 13

Repeat on the second paper print-out, using the 4 as your starting piece and continuing with J through L and adding N to the end.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 14

Trim the inside of both pieces leaving a 1/4” seam allowance.  Stitch the two pieces together down the center with right sides together.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 15

Flip over and cut around the outside edge of the pattern.  A seam allowance is already accounted for.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 16

Carefully tear away all of the paper.  Tweezers might come in handy for the small pieces in the seams.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 17

Cut out the backing and the InsulBrite. Cut a 3” piece of the elastic cord and sew or tie the ends of it together.  Layer the pieces with the InsulBrite, the front, the elastic centered on the right side, a tag on the left if you use one and the back face down on top.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 18

Stitch around with a 1/4” seam, leaving a couple of inches open at the bottom for turning.  Clip the corners, turn right-side out and press, turning in the opening.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 19

Stitch all the way around, close to the edge.  Sew the button on the side opposite the elastic.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 20

Hook the elastic around the button, slide it onto a cup and you’re done.

Class of '14 Coffee Sleeve - Crafty Staci 21

Are you a little dizzy after all of that?  I know it seems complex, but once you understand the basics of foundation paper piecing it’s actually pretty easy.  I look at it like this – at least it’s not as difficult and complicated as graduating from high school!

Foundation Paper Piecing Basics

If you’re a quilter, you are probably familiar with foundation paper piecing.  If not, you’ve likely seen the technique used, you just didn’t know how it was done.  It makes the most intimidating designs with tiny pieces manageable.  Basically, foundation paper piecing is sewing fabric onto a paper pattern in a specific order to create a picture or design.  This wall hanging from Quiltmaker is a good example (all of the blocks can be downloaded on their site).

Seasons and Celebrations from Quiltmaker

For me, paper piecing is like driving a stick shift.  I know how to do it, but so much time passes in between that I have to refresh my memory every time before I get started.  If you’ve never tried paper piecing, or need a reminder like me, this video from Crafty Gemini is one of the best I’ve seen.  It’s simple, but all of the important points are there.  There is also a good video from Connecting Threads.  If you’d rather read that watch, check out the aptly named series from The Littlest Thistle – Foundation Paper Piecing for the Terrified

Foundation Paper Piecing for the Terrified from The Littest Thistle

The reason I’m bringing up foundation paper piecing today is that I’ll be sharing a project on Wednesday that uses the technique.  I’ve give you a hint…it’s Coffee Sleeve of the Month time again!

I wanted to try out a small project before I tackled my coffee sleeve, so I decided to make a Confetti Star Block from During Quiet Time on Craftsy.  It’s piecing in sections, then the sections are joined, which is similar to my pattern.  I’ll tell you right now, some people are really good at cutting their pieces with a minimum amount of waste, but I am not those people.  My pieces are big and sloppy.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 1

I followed the directions that came with the pattern, which involved building each of the four sections.  One thing I re-learned on my first row of stitching is that you have to make sure each piece is going to cover it’s intended area, which may involve some planning, such as turning this one so it would be oriented correctly when it’s flipped back.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 2

I assembled each section, which gave me this.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 3

I left the paper attached to sew the sections together, but I think I would remove it next time.  It was a little tricky getting some of it out of the seams.  Also, when the instructions tell you to shorten your stitch length, don’t forget to do it.  It makes removing the paper MUCH easier.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 4

After I removed all of the paper and gave it a good, final press, I was pretty happy with the result.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 5

A closer view reveals that some of my corners didn’t match up perfectly, but I still think it’s cute enough to use somewhere.

Foundation Paper Piecing - Crafty Staci 6

Are you ready to try a foundation paper pieced coffee cup sleeve?  Great…I’ll see you on Wednesday!
