Ultimate Crab Cakes
4 PointsPlus Per Serving
1.Put crab meat in a large bowl and cover with bread crumbs and moisten with milk.
2.Combine beaten egg with the mayonnaise in a separate bowl. Add baking powder, parsley,
onion, salt, and pepper.
3.Pour this mixture over crab/crumb/milk mixture. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Dust cakes
lightly with flour.
4.After one hour, form crab into cakes, not over mixing or over forming. Put each crab cake
on wax-paper - (putting wax paper on top too) and let sit until ready to fry up. Let sit again, at
least one hour, this makes the cake easier to hold together during the cooking process.

carefully, flipping over and frying for another 4-5 minutes until browned.
