Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0O.K. Thats enough. The ratio for the number of servings is 8 to 6 or 8/6 which further reduces to 4/3. Do you follow that? In other words the amount of butter will need to increase by that ratio.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 is the number of servings that she is preparing for. For 6 she needed 1/2 cup, for 8 she needs more but less than 8 cups! Absolutely 2/3 cup of butter is good.
