Maryland Crab Cakes
Maryland Crab Cakes have been a favorite for many seafood lovers since back in the colonial times. Food historians say the practice of creating seafood meat cakes is ancient. Recipes for crab cakes may of first been introduced to the colonies by English settlers. A survey of historic American cookbooks confirms crab recipes were popular from colonial days forward. During the early 19th century crab cake recipes grew rapidly and became more popular. Many of these crab cake recipes used bread crumbs and some spices; some were pan fried. These recipes are were know as “to stew crabs,” “to fry crabs,” “to dress crab,” “crab patties” or “crab croquettes.” It wasn’t until the early 20th century that the name “crab cake” became a name that identified this famous seafood favorite. Then in 1930 in Crosby Gaige’s New York World’s Fair Cook Book, the term “Crab Cake” appeared in print, at which time it was referred to the delicacy as a “Baltimore crab cakes.”
