Does anyone have the recipe for crab cakes that was on the old McCormick's Chesapeake Bay Style Seafood Seasoning can? Thanks.

    Here's a link to the Old Bay Crab Cakes recipe in a 1994 newspaper:

    Here's the Old Bay Crab Cakes recipe from 2007 at their website on the Wayback Machine

    Here's the same "classic" recipe at the current website:

    OLD BAY Crab Cakes (2007 recipe).

    Helping seafood everywhere reach it's full flavor potential.

    Trivia players, take note: this is the original recipe that appeared on the back of the OLD BAY® can. (It’s a keeper.) Baking powder makes the crab cakes light and fluffy, while OLD BAY Seasoning adds personality. Serves four lucky folks.

    Ingredients

    2 slices dried bread, crusts removed
    milk
    1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon McCormick® Parsley Flakes
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon OLD BAY® Seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 egg, beaten
    1 pound lump crabmeat

    Directions

    In a large bowl, break bread into small pieces. Moisten with milk.

    Add mayo, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, baking powder, OLD BAY, salt, egg and crabmeat. Mix lightly and shape into patties. If time permits, refrigerate patties 30 minutes to help keep them together when cooking.

    Broil or fry until golden-brown on both sides.
