I made this for my husband coffee group. The men didn't leave me a crumb. One of the guys said this is the best recipe yet. I always made them "monkey bread"

Delicious and easy! I made this Saturday night and refrigerated it overnight until I baked it Sunday morning, and it turned out great. But remember (as I did NOT) that if your cake pan has a dark interior finish, set your oven 25 degrees cooler.
