Made these for my husband's birthday and they were easy and delicious! Very tasty! Some of the other reviewers complained that they had trouble getting the cakes to hold together, but I had no problem at all. The trick may have been that when I mixed the ingredients together, I used a fork to break up all the crab pieces, so that the entire mixture had a "tuna salad" type consistency. That way, the cakes held together very nicely. Just in case, I also put the cakes in the refrigerator for about ten minutes before I fried them, but I really think it was the mixing that did the trick.
A P.S. TO THIS REVIEW. I have made these several times since I most recently wrote this review, but tonight I bought canned "crabmeat" instead of the canned "lump crab" I have used in the past. Now I understand why other reviewers have so much trouble with the cakes falling apart! Use canned "lump crab", and break up the pieces with a fork. Your cakes will stay together. Do not use the "crabmeat" that is shredded into tiny pieces in the can!!
