The best way to find equivalents is to use the USDA database. It will give you nutritional information for an ingredient stated in both grams and customary equivalent.
http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

As an example, 1 cup of granulated sugar is 200 g.
Form a ratio to convert other quantities
125 g sugar x 1 cup sugar/200 g sugar = 0.625 cups sugar.

Unfortunately, this a decimal, not the common fractions usually used. However, it is 5/8 cup of sugar or five ounces (or 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons.)

The conversion of a decimal to a common fraction is very annoying. If you plan a lot of metric cooking, you may want to get a scale and weigh the ingredients in grams.

All purpose flour is 1 cup = 125 g
Powdered sugar has two values.
1 cup = 100 g sifted, or 120 g unsifted

I'll leave conversion of the recipe amounts as an exercise.
