Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.

Gently spoon half of batter into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. To the remaining batter, stir in the orange zest, orange extract and, if desired, food colorings.

Gently spoon orange batter over white batter.

Cut through both layers with a knife to swirl the orange and remove air pockets.

Bake on the lowest oven rack at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry.

Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.

Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate.
