Maryland Goodness

there is nothing better than an authentic maryland crab cake. if you have never had a homemade crab cake at someone's house in maryland, chances are you have never had a real crab cake. unless, of course, you happen to be lucky enough to have eaten a crab cake at friendly farms in upperco. in which case, you have tasted a bit of heaven. but, i digress.

i had a hankering for crab cakes, so i got some fresh jumbo lump crab meat from the store and whipped up my aunt's secret recipe. ok, so it's not technically secret because it isn't even written down anywhere. its in her head and she has passed her knowledge onto me. now, i'm not claiming the best maryland crab cake ever made, but it's pretty damn good.

while i won't be divulging the recipe online i will tell you this - the key is to broil it. these crab cakes can barely hold it together because there is so little filling so, pile it together on a sheet pan and broil them in the oven.

oh, one other thing. i won't give you the recipe, but if you come to my house with a bottle of wine and a fabulous dessert, i will make them for you. promise!
