Just a quick note..when I made these, I separated the egg white and beat it until it was fluffy. Then mixed in with the clams, making the cakes lighter inside. Yum.

I loved this. I am a native Rhode Islander and these were just like the ones my grandmother made when I was a kid. They are light and crispy on the outside, not like the heavy doughnut type things you get a most clam shacks. Really, really good.
