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.

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

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. :)
