This is a wonderful recipe to do with children. I have done with kids as young as 3 and as old as 9. This is also a good recipe for anyone who is intimidated by yeast breads. The recipe originated with Jane Zukin's Dairy-Free Cookbook, which helped me not panic when we figured out that my daughter is severely allergic to milk protein. Monkey Bread is somewhat traditional in the South. It is called Monkey Bread because you eat it like monkeys - tearing off chunks to eat.
