Add 1/2 cup of flour and mix with the dough hook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add an additional 1/2 cup of flour and mix until well combined. Continue adding the flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until a soft dough is formed. The dough should still stick to the bottom of the bowl, but pull away from the sides. Let the dough mix for around 8 minutes total.
