    Hi,

    I have a recipe for a brioche bread pudding.  The recipe has a portion size of 700, and calls for the following (amongst other things):
    I don't understand these measurements.  The step that uses these ingredients is:
    I am trying to reduce the portions from 700 to 8, but don't know how to handle these two ingredients.  Do the measurements above mean anything to anyone? 

    Thanks!

    Those measurements mean nothing to me, sorry. I just wanted to advise you to find another recipe. Going from 700 to 8 is a HUGE factor to scale by. You are really playing with fire any time you adjust a recipe this much. Any slight amount that is off in the original will be almost 100 times off after scaling. There are a lot of things that can go wrong when you try to adjust by very large factors

    Good luck!
