Place raisins in a small bowl, pour over the water
And soak for 20 minutes to rehydrate.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
In the meantime, grease an oven dish with 2 Tablespoons butter, and set aside.
While the raisins are soaking
Warm the milk over a low heat in a medium saucepan, then add the remaining butter, and stir until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
Peel and slice the apples, and place in a bowl with the lemon juice, making sure each slice is coated.
Add the eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla to a mixing bowl, and beat until smooth.
Stir in the milk and butter, and beat again for another minute or so, to thoroughly incorporate.
Drain the raisins, and discard the water.
Dip each slice of bread into the custard
And place a layer (including crusts) on the bottom of the baking dish.
Sprinkle the raisins over the bread, then a layer of cheese, and then arrange the slices of apple on top.
Pour over the lemon juice.
Add another layer of dipped bread, and pour any remaining custard over the top. Sprinkle over 2 Tablespoon of brown sugar.
