Add the remaining 2 tbsps sugar and let simmer until bubbles form on the sides. Pour immediately into two to three leche flan molds, distributing evenly . Tilt molds until the bottom of the molds are evenly coated with the syrup.

Cooking tip: Bubbles are formed when air has been incorporated in your leche flan. To prevent bubbles from forming, do not include egg whites in your recipe.
