Maryland Crab Cakes
2 slices of white bread, crusts removed and milk, sufficient to moisten bread
1 pound crab meat
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
Break bread into small pieces and moisten with milk, combine with the remaining ingredients. Shape into patties. Refridgerate for an hour, this makes them firm, and helps keep them from falling apart during frying. Fry patties quickly in hot oil until brown.
This is an all time favorite. There is nothing like a Maryland Crab Cake!!!
