New England Bread Pudding

3 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
2 cups dry bread cubes
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sherry
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mace
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup seedless raisins

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Scald the milk, add the butter, and pour the hot liquid over the bread cubes. Soak about five minutes, then add the sugar, eggs, sherry, and spices. Add the raisins. Pour the mixture into a buttered baking dish. Set it in a pan of hot water and bake for one hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
