Egg weights seem off. And what size pan?

I have farm eggs that are all different, so I am attempting to follow the recipe using the weights given for 2 large eggs (3.5 ounces/100 grams). Is that supposed to be the total weight for 2 eggs? Large eggs are typically about 2 ounces and only my smallest eggs add up to 100 grams. Is the weight correct?

Weights. Many if not most seem rounded off (up or down) to make even amounts. I would not rely on them, but instead make this cake using the volume measures.
Pan size. Recipe says it makes a "standard loaf" about 9x5" and 3-4" high (Imperial) or corresponding metric length width height.

Metric loaf pan measure
23 x 13 x 8 cm
(for 9 x 5 x 3 inch pan)

Thanks so much for your response. I used the weights and 2 medium eggs. I googled "standard loaf pan" and the first result was 8x4" so that's what I used. It fit perfectly and baked in exactly 55 minutes. I don't think there's enough batter here for a 9x5 pan- it would be a very short loaf. The result is delicious but I think "standard loaf" is vague so they should specify.

Glad to hear your good results.

And thanks for actual pan size, for future baking.
