Drain raisins, reserving rum, and sprinkle raisins over apples. Bake in a preheated 350 F. oven for 15 minutes. Beat eggs and sugar until thick and lemon-colored. Stir in milk and reserved rum.

Pour custard over apples and bake for 45 to 60 minutes at 350 F. until custard is set. Cool completely before serving. Do NOT remove from springform pan until cool.
