Orange juice is used in both a dough made with high-gluten flour and in an icing to go over the top of this delightful risen Greek-style bread loaf traditionally served at Easter.

Mix 2 cups flour and yeast together in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Stir milk butter sugar and salt together in a saucepan; heat and stir over medium-low heat until the mixture is smooth and the temperature is between 90 degrees F (32 degrees C) to 100 degrees F (37 degrees C).

Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture add eggs and beat on low speed for 30 seconds.

Increase speed to high and beat for 3 minutes more.

Add 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons orange juice to the mixture; mix on high for 3 minutes more.

Fit the mixer with a dough hook.

Add remaining flour to the mixture; beat with dough hook until the flour is completely incorporated.
