Maryland Crab Cakes

By request, here's the recipe for the crab cakes that Second Helpings served at Friday night's Harvest event:

Maryland Crab Cakes
(Makes 8 servings)

2 pounds jumbo lump crab meat
2 large eggs
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning

Pick through crab and remove any shell pieces. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except crab and mix to combine thoroughly.
Add crab and toss GENTLY to prevent breaking up the lumps.
Divide into eight equal portions and shape into one-inch thick patties. Place on an ungreased parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake the crab cakes for 12 - 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
