I played around with Paula Deen's and Mrs. Duvall's crab cake recipes and came up with the most delicious, moist, tasty crab cake in the Northeast! My family and friends are totally amazed!

Excellent! I love how easy these were, and they turned out nice and crispy on the outside. A great bonus with these vs. pan fried is that you have all of them finished at exactly the same time, without having to do them in batches. Very good flavors. I served these with a creamy pesto sauce - yummy!
