    Morning Biscotti's Note:

    This is a lighter and creamier version. They are soft and need at least an hour chilling time before pan frying.

      These were good crab cakes but not creamy. My husband wanted creamy crab cakes in the worst way. He found this recipe himself and I tried it for a special occasion. While the crab cakes were good, mine did not turn out creamy at all. I followed the instructions almost to the letter but my "thin mayonaise" mixture was very liquid. I had a hard time forming the cakes without them falling apart. I found it difficult to drege them in bread crumbs without them falling apart. I had extra liquid which I poured over the cakes and it was absorbed after chilling for several hours. I had no doubt that I was not going to be able to fry these without them breaking apart so, as other recipes suggested, I baked them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and then broiled them for 5 minutes. I was pleased by how crispy the bread crumb coating turned out. (I had used panko crumbs.) While these were spicy and tasty, they were just not what I was hoping for, which was a crusty crab cake with a soft creamy center.
