Ingredients
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Fat 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying)
  Egg yolks 2 , beaten
  Sour milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sifted flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pecans 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Raisins 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dates 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Orange juice 2 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Collect and measure all the ingredients as required.
2. Into a basin, sift together the measured flour and salt.
3. Heat fat in a deep fat fryer or frying pan to 325°F

MAKING
4. In a large batter bowl, add the egg yolks and sugar.
5. Whisk using a wire whisk or electric beater, until well blended.
6. Stir the soda into the milk and add to the egg mixture and whisk well.
7. Stir the sifted flour to make a thick batter like dough.
8. Add the nuts, dates and orange juice and rind and stir well.
9. Use a dessert spoon to drop the dough into a bowl of flour and gently roll to form a ball. The coating of flour will prevent excess absorption of the fat when frying.
10. Drop into the hot fat, working in batches. You can also directly drop spoonfuls in the hot fat.
11. Fry until golden on one side before turning and frying the other side.
12. Remove using a slotted spoon onto paper towels to drain
13. Drop them in a bowl of powdered sugar while hot.

SERVING
14. Dust again with powdered sugar before serving them warm.
15. Enjoy with coffee

TIP
Histulas should be quite small, only slightly larger than the hole in an ordinary doughnut.
