Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the diced Pandoro in a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, until nice and crispy.
Peel and dice the apples. Add to a pan with butter, 1 scraped vanilla bean, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder. Cook for 5 minutes on high heat, until butter and sugar melts.
Put the diced Pandoro into a 9-by-9 baking dish together with the apple mixture.
In a saucepan bring 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of cream to simmer. In a bowl whisk the eggs with ¼ cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of dark rum. Whisk the hot milk-cream-mixture into the eggs, until the bowl gets warm (constantly whisking).
Pour the just prepared mixture on top of the apples and the Pandoro cubes. Let the liquid soak for at least 30 minutes, stirring a couple of times.
Bake for 40 minutes, until custard is set.
Slice apples with a mandolin and lay them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake at 275 degrees F for 60 minutes or until crispy.
Serve in a 2.5 inch ring mold, garnish with a scoop of gelato and anapple chip. Finish with the sauce.
