Can anyone confirm my somewhat clumsy conversion to US weights and measures?

For the Toast:

480g Fresh Bread (Any Kind) (=17
ounces; picture shows 5 slices)

6 Large Eggs

360ml Milk (~12 ounces, 1 1/2 c.)

120ml Maple Syrup (4 ounces, 1/2 c.)

1tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2tsp Cinnamon

1/4tsp Nutmeg

1/4tsp Salt

For the Topping:

60g Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup, or 1/2
stick in the US)

100g Light Brown Sugar (>1/2 c. but
less that 2/3 c.)

120ml Maple Syrup (4 ounces, 1/2 c.)

50g Golden Syrup (maybe substitute 2
ounces dark corn syrup by weight)

100g Pecans (< 4 ounces by weight)

My thanks in advance. This is perfect for a lazy weekend morning...

Hi, everything is correct! I used around 10 slices of bread even though the picture only shows 5 but 17 ounces is an accurrate conversion. Hope you enjoy :)

Thank you! I don't suppose it would be perfect for a *Wednesday* morning... (I wish I had time.)

& yes you can substitute the golden syrup with corn syrup :)
