This is a recipe from my grandmother. These are simple crab cakes, but made with fresh crab meat, which makes all the difference. Coated in breadcrumbs and fried till golden, they are delicious as a main or starter.

These are amazing! Following the directions precisely, they came out crunchy on the outside and delicate on the inside, like pillows! As a comment in response to the review that said there was too much filler in these... this is not a recipe for classis jumbo lump Chesepeake-style crabcakes. You should only use as much bread as you need to hold this mix together. You CANNOT use a "wonder" style bread either. All that being said...Try these. They are wonderful! - 03 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have made these crab cakes twice and both times my family and guests have loved them! Thanks for such a great recipe. - 02 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
