You can not beat the smell of bread baking.
1/2 a loaf of stale bread, soaked in water (just enough to cover it)
250g of mixed dried fruit
100g shredded vegetable suet
2tsp of Mixed Ground Spice
When the bread is well soaked fork it over until it is the consistency of porridge. Add all of the other ingredients and mix well. Turn into a baking tin and cook in a medium oven for 40 mins to an hour, until it is nicely browned and starts to smell done. (Sorry for the lack of precision). It will feel soft to the touch but will firm up as it cools. Leave the pudding to go cool, or you will not slice it very successfully.
