In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with 2 tablespoons of sugar until you have a creamy mixture.
With a hand mixer, beat the egg whites with a spoonful of sugar to stiff meringue and set aside.
In the bowl with the yolk mix, add the zest of an orange and the milk-butter mixture.

With a rubber spatula wrap the meringue into the mixture from the bottom to the top and add the crumbled ricotta.
