I see that some of your measurements are in grams. Do you have a conversion to non-metric measure. If not, perhaps someone who has made the pastry using your recipe could tell me. It looks like an awesome cake and reminds me of something my Grandma made with apples when I was a kid. I'd really like to be able to make it.

Thanks very much.
