To Helen McGuiness - grams and millilitres are the same. You can weigh the cream cheese out in grams without affecting the recipe.

I really want to make this cheesecake, but the cream cheese measurement is in mls... My cream cheese is in grams...

Really really yummy cheesecake, although next time I'd squeeze less lemon in next time as it is so rich. This is the first time I've made a cheesecake but I've tasted a great deal and I'd say that this is a winning gluten-free recipe.
