Gram measurements for the flour?

Would you happen to know the weight measurements for the flour (and other ingredients, but mainly concerned re: the flour:))? I am baking in Europe and the flour is milled quite differently, I find working in measurements to be very helpful! Many thanks in advance!

When you use Imperial-volume measures (whether from US contemporary sources or historical recipes from anywhere), use a chart like the one I've linked to figure out Metric weight or liquid volume.
It will show, for example, that a cup of flour weights 125g, so that means 562.5 grams for 4.5 cups flour.
But be aware the amounts aren't exact. Another chart, for ex, says 120g per cup.

Thank you so much, Nancy! I noticed the differences in amounts as well, so thought I'd check to see if a specific amount had been used successfully for this recipe already. I'm happy to try it out and report back when I do!

Vittoria - the only thing I can suggest (on the variations in translated measures) is to use one chart throughout a recipe. That is, if you start with a chart that says 125g flour per cup, stay with that chart all through your recipe.
It will likely give you more consistent ratios and end result.
