    The milk in the new recipe is 9/8 of the amount in the original. That indicates the flour needs to increase by the same ratio, so I'd say you need about a cup and an eighth.

    Original recipe: 1 1/3 cups milk = 8/6 cups; second recipe: 1 1/2 cups of milk = 9/6 cups. Ratio is 9/8, increase flour by the same ratio.
