It is so hard to find a true Maryland crab cake recipe out there. This is basically the recipe my grandmother used, but I've tweaked it just a bit. I also usually double the recipe.

Great recipe! I needed a crab cake recipe that didn't require crackers as I didn't have any on hand and this one worked well. For someone who has never made crab cakes before this was quick and easy to follow. I did not have any parsley or baking powder available but they still turned out well. Thanks. Read More

I didn't like this recipe. I don't know if it was because of the type of crab I used but the texture was off and it was a tad too spicy to be considered a crab cake to me. And also not enough bread to hold them together. Plenty of flavor but not a crab cake-ey like flavor. Read More

The last minute My MIL. Wanted to do 7 fishes for Christmas Eve so I was assigned crab cakes & clam dip... I found this recipe and everyone raved... My husband said they were just like the ones he had down at the Harbor. They were so good I was asked to make them for New Year's Eve... MIL never got one at Christmas and was thrilled... This will be made again & again... Only change I made was that I used a medium scoop to create see picture because they were an appetizer Read More
