Drain the crab meat from its natural liquid. Put the pulp into a bowl, add the beaten eggs and then the cream. Adjust salt and pepper. Add the paprika and milk and stir the mixture well. Grease the ramekins with butter, and sprinkle some breadcrumbs into them so that it lightly covers the surface. Pour the mixture into the ramekins up to 2/3 capacity. Bake at 180°C for 30minutes. After the cooking time, turn off the oven leaving the ramekins for a few minutes inside. Then, once they have cooled slightly, turn them out. Serve warm, sprinkled with paprika.
Pour the crab mixture into the ramekins. Then place them in a baking dish with a little water at the bottom and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes. After this time, turn off the oven and leave the ramekins in there for a few minutes.
