Why is it called monkey bread?

I'm really not sure. Here's what Wikipedia had to say:

Monkey Bread, also called "Affenbrot" (German, literally meaning "ape bread") Hungarian coffee cake and bubbleloaf, is a sticky, gooey pastry served as a breakfast treat.[1]Recipes for the towering bread first appeared in American women's magazines and community cookbooks in the 1950s. It is made with pieces of sweet yeast dough which are baked in a cake pan at high heat after first being individually covered in melted butter, cinnamon, sugar and chopped pecans. [2] It is traditionally served hot so that the baked segments can be easily torn away with the fingers and eaten by hand.[3]

I have been craving sticky buns today. I am making this tonight, hope it is great!! Jeve

Made it. It was very easy and fast. The taste was great for my husband and kid. I need to find a biscuit or premade bread mix that doesn't have that refrigerator biscuit aftertaste. But overall great easy satisfying recipe. Jeve

just so people know, monkey bread is also great without the pecans, for whoever doesn't like them.
