To make layered bread pudding, heat 2/3 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch in a pan on low, and then stir in 3 cups of evaporated milk. After five minutes, stir in 2 beaten egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and cook for another three minutes. In a bowl, combine 1 1/2 packages of broken up sliced bread, 1 can of condensed milk, 1 can of evaporated milk, 4 tablespoons of butter and 1 egg, and season the mixture with 1 tablespoon each of vanilla extract, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Layer the bread mixture and custard in a baking dish, starting and ending with the bread. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top, and place the dish in a water bath before baking it at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
