The Hack: Introducing the cupcake pan method for cooking Maryland crab cakes. This genius hack not only saves time but also ensures consistent and beautifully round crab cakes, each and every time. Here's how it works:

Please Note: In the examples pictured below, we are using a dozen 2oz. Maryland Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes.

  1. Place the still-wrapped frozen crab cake in a cupcake pan and defrost it overnight in the fridge. This allows the crab cake to thaw evenly while retaining its shape.

  2. The next day, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Unwrap the crab cakes and place them back into the cupcake pan, ensuring they fit snugly into each cup.

  3. Top each crab cake with a slice of butter for added flavor and moisture.

  4. Once the oven reaches the desired temperature, bake the crab cakes for 13-16 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
