"Having lived by the Chesapeake Bay on Kent Island, MD nearly my whole life, I was challenged to develop this authentic Maryland style crab cake about a year ago. Many people claim to have the true Maryland crab cake, but this one uses all lump meat with almost no filler added and tastes incredible! Let me know what you think!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, baking powder, parsley, mustard powder, pepper, and seafood seasoning; set aside. Stir together mayonnaise, butter, Worcestershire, and egg product until smooth. Fold in crab meat, then fold in bread crumb mixture until well blended.
  3. Shape mixture into 12 crab cakes, about 3/4 inch thick, and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then turn the crab cakes over, and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until nicely browned.

Footnotes

  • To make a lighter version, omit butter, use fat free mayonnaise, increase the bread crumbs to 5 tablespoons, and use egg whites instead of regular egg product.

Very good crab cakes. I liked that they were baked.. felt healthier than frying them. I put them on a cookie sheet with foil, and sprayed some butter flavored cooking spray on it and put them ...

These were fantastic! I was looking for just this type of recipe to bake instead of fry. The only thing I did differently was to chill the cakes for a couple of hours before baking. Soooo goo...

replaced mayo with ranch, used cajun seasoning instead of seafood, and added some chopped celery.

My husband always rave about Maryland crab cakes and he said that these were pretty good! I baked them in a muffin pan, so they were all even and brown on all sides.

I wanted to give 5 stars but my mixture was too watery. Other than that it was delicious. My fiance is from the Chesapeake Bay area in Virginia and he said this was equal to, if not better tha...
