    I followed the recipe, but like the other reviewer, I had to use more bread crumb than asked for in recipe. But all in all it was good.

    This is my first attempt at crab cakes. I left off the green onions and used cooked, caramelized white onion. I also used a big dash of cayenne pepper for more flavor. My mixture was very moist, even after adding 1/3 cup of the breadcrumbs; therefore, I ended up adding a lot more breadcrumbs to the mixture. My resulting crab cakes had a heavy bread crumb flavor, but were still soft in texture. I don't know if this is how they're supposed to be, but I think I would prefer a patty without breadcrumbs holding it together. The breadcrumbs did give me a nice golden, crunchy outer coating, which I enjoyed. Also, the recipe doesn't specify to drain the crab, but I did. For a first attempt at crab cakes, these were quite yummy and I ate three of them by myself! Thank you for posting.

    Loved this recipe. It is almost like the one my mom used when I was growing up. If you have leftover cakes they make great cold crab cake sandwiches. I usually double the recipe so we can have left overs.
