Mimi's Maryland Crab Cakes

“This is my mom's (Mimi's) crab cake recipe, and I think it's the best! She originally came to Florida from Baltimore, and they know their crab cakes there! This might even be an Old Bay recipe, I don't know. I like to make these and my potato salad and Mimi's baked beans for "special" occasions. Mimi used to serve her crab cakes with her coleslaw as a side dish. This recipe makes 8-10 cakes depending on the size.”
