Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Butter ovenproof 2 quart baking dish with butter.

Combine raisins and coffee liqueur in small saucepan, simmer for 10 minutes until raisins are plump and most of liquid is absorbed.  Place evenly in bottom of baking dish, evenly spread cubed coffeecake over raisins.

In large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, extract, cinnamon and nutmeg until well blended.  Pour mixture over coffeecake, pressing down coffeecake so that all the coffeecake has been soaked in the milk/egg mixture.
