2oz butter = 1/2 stick = 4tb
1oz sugar = ~1/3 cup
5oz flour = 1 1/4 cups

The eggs are bit confusing because the recipe lists 6 oz but "(3 medium eggs)". 1 large egg, US size, is 1.67 oz, without the shell. So 6oz of eggs is 3 large eggs.

HalfPint, you are the best!

Sorry, my math is a bit off. That should be ~3 and a half large eggs.

My measurement for sugar (including caster) is 7 ounces=1 cup, so I would say that 1 ounce of sugar is more in the range of about 3 tablespoons, and definitely less than 1/4 cup. If I were making this recipe, I would use about 3/4 cup of caster sugar and a scant 1/4 cup for the muscovado.
