To Caramelize Sugar:
In a small pan over medium low heat, melt 1/3 cup sugar, taking care not to burn it. 

When sugar has melted and turned golden brown, vigorously stir in two tablespoons water to blend. Transfer to a small leche flan mold. Swirl caramelized sugar inside the mold. Set aside.

Flan Mixture:
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 cups 2% milk
1/4 cup condensed milk
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven at 3500 and fill a big pan with about 1/2-inch high water. In a bowl, blend throughly flan mixture ingredients. Pour mixture into leche flan mold with caramelized sugar (see procedure above). Place mold on pan with water in oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until firm.

Let cool. Chill before serving. Unmold from container to a serving dish.

You may easily caramelize sugar in the microwave using specifically the thin Corning glass pans (or the microwave method might not work). In a Corning glass pan, mix 1/3 cup sugar with 2 tablespoons water. 

Microwave in high heat for 3 minutes. Take out pan and swirl liquified sugar, then puf back in the microwave and cook for another minute or until golden light brown. Swirl caramelized sugar inside the mold. Set aside.
