Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the pancake mix, mustard, mayonnaise, egg and parsley until well blended. Fold in the crabmeat. Form into 3 inch patties.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. There should be enough oil to reach half way up the sides of the crab cakes. When the oil is hot, carefully place the patties in the pan. Fry until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes per side. If patties are browning too fast, reduce the heat. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

The pancake batter (which BTW is not original to the "true" Maryland crabcake, masks the flavor of the crabmeat.

I was born and live in Baltimore Maryland and worked at three fine dining resteraunts growing up. A maryland crab cake is crab meat, mayonaise, eggs,bread crumbs, and spices, the BEST is the McCormick crab cake classic recipe its nots cheap but it allows the rich clean flavor of the crab meat to come through in the finish product if they sell the seasoning in your supermarket try it..p.s. A MARYLAND CRABCAKE IS BROILED NEVER FRIED OR PANFRIED

Wow! This is an awesome and amazingly easy recipe! I served it on a bed of romaine with a chili mayo sauce drizzled over the cakes. Yum! Hint to all use Bisquik instead of pancake mix. The consistency was perfect!
