It’s vegan, it’s fast and simple, and it’s delicious!  Made by American housewives in the 50s, but no one is certain as to the origin of the name.  The bread is really more of a cinnamon coffee cake than a bread.  (You might also want to try lemon monkey bread.  Visit my fellow blogger Epicurean Vegan)
