The problem of the cakes falling apart can be remedied by chilling them for a few hour or over night. Then bake them using less oil and saving calories. Read More

They were extremely tasty and fairly easy to make. One thing--I had a difficult time getting them to stick together. Read More

The flavor of these crab cakes was delightful. Having said that I found them a hassle to prepare and cook. They seemed to fall apart the moment they were placed in the pan to fry. However I think if I had made smaller cakes they would have worked out better. I'm willing to make this again.:) Read More

Didn't have a problem with them falling apart but I think they'd be better with more spices and they weren't crunchy enough. I cooked them for quite a while but it seemed like they just wouldn't get done. bland flavor..it was missing something. Read More
