Sunday Brunch: Crab and Corn Cakes

Crab cakes are an almost perfect morning food—easy on the palate, and not too heavy in the stomach. The addition of corn kernels and creamed corn adds just a bit of sweetness and texture without overwhelming the delicate flavor of the crab. Although fresh is always better, these cakes can be made out of cans from your pantry if you've got last-minute company.

Typically, I use very few canned goods in my culinary quests, however, should I ever come down with a case of agoraphobia—or perhaps a recession riot leaves my local grocery store empty—I better be prepared to keep up my reputation in the kitchen.

Essentials: Crab Cakes

Crab cakes are one of those things that always look powerfully enticing on a menu but that I almost never order. They’re too expensive, or I’m feeling too fat to eat fried food, or—and this is usually the dealbreaker for... More
