We inhaled these like Sqidward in "Sponge Bob Sqare Pants (the episode where he discovers how tasty the crab cakes are). Thanks for a great recipe!

Hi Aroostook; The spices were to perfection and I loved the cornflakes coating. A very easy recipe to make. Thank you so much for sharing, they were awesome. Will make them again for the BIG football game. "Uncle Bill"

These crab cakes are amazing. The best thing about them is they aren't fried, so no messy grease splatters to clean up. They had a wonderful golden crunchy coating and we ate them all until they were gone. Seasoned to perfection. Thanks for a recipe we will use regularly.
