    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 :)
