Raspberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

¼ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup plus 3 tbsp. milk
1 large egg
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup raspberries
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips (add less if you don’t want pancakes too
pure maple syrup, heated

In a small saucepan melt 2 tbsp. butter over moderately low heat, stirring. Stir
in milk and heat until just warm. Remove pan from heat. In a bowl whisk
together milk mixture and egg. In another bowl sift together flour, baking
powder, and salt and stir in egg mixture until just combined. Gently stir in
raspberries and chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Heat griddle over moderate heat until hot
enough to scatter a drop of water over the surface. Add 1 teaspoon butter and
with a metal spatula spread over griddle. Working in batches, drop ¼ cup of
batter onto griddle to form pancakes about 4 inches in diameter and cook until
bubbles appear on surface and undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes.
Flip pancakes with spatula and cook until undersides are golden brown and
pancakes are cooked enough. Transfer pancakes as cooked to and oven proof
platter and keep warm, uncovered, in oven. Make more pancakes with
remaining butter and batter in same manner. Serve pancakes with syrup.
