A packed and delicious crab cakes that you can serve alongside anything. Excellent addition to your weekly menu that your whole family will love. Such pretty golden brown cakes that you can easily and quickly make at any time and any day. My mom used to make these when I was young and I remembered asking her how did she manage to make such pretty cakes. When I was old enough, she taught me this and gave me her recipe. Her recipe contains a baking powder which makes these crab cakes airy light and super fluffy. Which is amazing and what I prefer. My family’s number one favorite – simple, not fussy, and tastes amazing! If you are feeling a little boring, spice this up by adding chili flakes like what I do most of the time.
