    isobel about 180c nnangie: as this is a student recipe site i'll give you a cheap way of measuring. mils and grams are almost interchangeable so using a "pint glass or red cup" which is 500ml=500g, we can guess 225g is just under a half pint and 170g is just over a quarter pint. so this recipe is 510g( 20g for eggs and 10g for vanilla) or just over 1 pint hope that helps
