"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
7 eggs, separated
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

In a bowl, combine cocoa, boiling water, 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons oil; whisk until smooth. Cool. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Whisk egg yolks, water and remaining oil; add to dry ingredients. Beat until well blended. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form; fold into batter. Remove 2 cups of batter; stir into cocoa mixture. To the remaining batter, add orange peel. Alternately spoon the batters into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Swirl with a knife.
