Cut thirty biscuits into quarters with scissors (3 cans of Hungry Jack biscuits). Shake in a bag with ¾ cup of granulated sugar mixed with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon until all pieces are coated and separated. Grease tube pan and place a few nuts and cherries in bottom of pan. Add half of biscuit pieces. Then add coarsely chopped nuts, cherries and raisins. Put in rest of biscuit pieces. Melt one stick of butter and pour over all. Bake at 350° F for 35 minutes. Do not sit very long after baking. Invert on plate. Do not cut cake, simply pick pieces with fingers. Like a monkey.
