1. In a large bowl, break bread into small pieces. Moisten with milk.
2. Add mayo, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, baking powder, Old Bay, salt, egg and crabmeat. Mix lightly and shape into 4 patties. Refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them stay formed when cooking.
3. Fill your frying pan with about 1/4″ vegetable oil. Over medium-high heat, fry until golden-brown on both sides. I usually flip every 1 minute to avoid over frying.
These are Maryland (Eastern Shore) style crab cakes. They are typically served either plain or with mayonnaise. If you want a spicier dipping sauce try this:
Spicy Remoulade Dipping Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup horseradish
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbs. hot sauce
1 tsp. paprika
In a medium-bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
