Description

This recipe developed when we had an abundance of fruit at our house. We were getting ready to leave town for a few days, while our college son stayed home. He loves banana bread, and blueberries, so I figured that mixing these flavors together would be a match made in heaven. I then found some raspberries, so I tossed these in as well. I still felt that it was missing something, so I whipped up a batch of streusel topping, and voila, mini mixed berry coffee cakes!
