This recipe is so easy a monkey could make it. Hence the name monkey bread, you think?
There is a similar recipe called Breakfast Pull-Aparts. The main difference is nuts and cherries in place of raisins, and corn syrup replaces some of the brown sugar. Both are listed here. Both are equally easy and delicious.
