Just a question. How many calories are homemade baked crab cakes

Welcome to DC.

There are too many variables in ingredients and crab cake sizes to say. Crab cakes are so expensive, I consider then a rare and wonderful treat, no calorie counting or guilt allowed.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

3.5 ounces of lump crab meat contains about 80 calories.

MasterCook figures out the information at the end of this recipe. I have no idea if it's accurate or not. It should be in the ball-park.
