Freaking Awesome. These are simple, easy, and maybe the best recipe on the website. I seldom make recipes without significantly more reviews and am extremely happy I tried this one. Good by themselves and with the sauce. do yourself a favor...make these and don't screw with the ingredients. I will never make regular crab cakes again after these bad boys. ( First review ever because they deserved it )


Very easy, very tasty. Warning that this recipe makes A LOT! One batch is enough to take to a party. Each teaspoon full of batter puffs up to about 3 times its size.


"FANTASTIC!!"I love the sauce,too!!One of the best recipes I've gotten here!
