Summer cobbler

Cobbler is great year round. And it's especially great in summer when the fresh peaches are at their peak!
In typical Jen fashion I experimented with making butter-less cobbler. Here are the ingredients:
-3 fresh peaches
-1 pint blackberries
-1/4 cup coconut oil
-3/4 cup sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tsp baking powder
-1 cup milk
-1.5 cups flour
-1/2 lemon
Start by beating the coconut oil and 1/2 cup sugar together (reserve the other 1/4 cup).
Then add the flour, baking soda and salt.
 Then add 1 cup milk into the mix.
And continue beating until it's very smooth.
Then get out the fresh fruit!   
 Slice up the peaches.
Pour 1/2 the batter into the bottom of a 9x9" pan.
Spread out the fruit over the batter.
Sprinkle lemon juice on the fruit.
Like so...
Then add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to the fruit.
Sprinkle it all on there...
Then add the remaining batter over the top (it's OK if it's not even).
Then add 1 cup of boiling water. Just pour it right on top of the whole thing.
 And bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, so it's light brown on top.
Then cut out a nice big piece and top it with ice cream and/or whipped cream.
 And savor the fruity sweetness!
