Downeast Mini Crabcakes

(Customer Reviews)

Caroline’s Pantry ships its legendary Downeast Mini Crabcakes nationwide on Goldbelly! You know her for her gorgeous Southern-style 7-layer cakes, but like any true Southern gal, Caroline knows her barbecue too. Caroline’s BBQ has taken their delicious crab cake recipe and made it bite-sized! A perfect appetizer, their mini crab cakes come by the dozen and are 1 oz. lump crab meat!

The late Caroline Ragsdale Reutter was known for her gorgeous Southern style 7-layer caramel cakes, but like any true Southern gal, Caroline also knew her barbecue, expanding the Spartanburg, South Carolina, business with a barbecue joint that — along with the bakery — is now run by Caroline’s son Richard. Caroline’s Carolina-style BBQ includes pulled pork that’s slow cooked and slathered with sweet and tangy pepper and vinegar sauce and small-batch Southern cheese biscuits.

The Southern Cheese Biscuits are delicious, cheesy, and crisp with just a hint of chili fire as you swallow. We are saving the pimento cheese for a later function, however, it is packaged quite well and waiting for me in our freezer.
