  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until foamy, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in warm milk, orange juice, sugar, ricotta, orange zest, salt and egg into yeast mixture.
  3. Using a heavy-duty electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and set on low speed, beat 2 cups flour into yeast mixture until a wet dough forms.
  4. Beat in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until stiff dough forms.
  5. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 5 to 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking.

  12. Braid the ropes together.
  13. Coil braided dough in prepared pan; tuck ends under.
  14. Cover loosely with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
