Ingredients
1 pkg active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 TBS grated orange zest
1 Lg. egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/2-4 cups all purpose flour

GLAZE: 1 large egg, lightly beaten

ICING:

1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2-2 TBS fresh orange juice


Directions
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until foamy, 5-10 min. Stir the warm milk, orange juice, sugar, ricotta cheese, orange zest, salt and egg into the yeast mixture. Using heavy-duty electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and set on low speed, beat 2 cups flour into the yeast mixture until a wet dough forms. Beat in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a stiff dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 5 to 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking. Place the dough in a large greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover loosely with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. Grease a 10 inch springform pan. Punch down the dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 to 2 minutes. Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 20 inch long rope. Braid the ropes together. Coil braided dough in prepared pan; tuck ends under. Cover loosely with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, 30 minutes.
