Beat egg whites and cream of tartar with hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter until well combined. Add the orange peel and pour the batter into a 10-inch tube pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
