      Followed your recipe exactly just to see if the cakes would end up kinda dry, & am happy to say they worked great for me! GREAT TASTING & VERY SATISFYING! Thanks much for posting a great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]

      This bite-size, finger-food appy has excellent flavor & is both low-cal & low-fat because the crab cakes are baked vs fried. I made a half recipe & my yield was 16 cakes using well-rounded tbsps of the crab mix. My only prob was the texture of the crab mix ~ it was *very* dry after using only 2/3 of the amt of breadcrumbs, so I stopped there & also used the egg white to add more moisture. My chgs kept the cakes intact during cooking & they did not dry out as I had feared. These were very tasty w/your Herbed Mayonnaise. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
