Crab Cakes

This recipe is slightly altered from Amanda Hesser's Grandmother's Crab Cake recipe. It is featured in her book "Cooking for Mr. Latte". She doesn't suggest any sauces to be served with this, as 'she likes them plain so you can taste the crab meat'. My first ever batch of crab cakes, from this recipe, were absolutely fantastic. Prep time includes sitting time.
