There are tons of recipes out there for monkey bread most of them us store bought biscuits. I've never seen one using a bread machine to make the dough. I'm intrigued. I'll try it for sure. I have always made my monkey bread in a bundt pan.

What if you don't have a bread machine?

Can this be baked in any other kind of pan. Maybe a loaf pan?

I have made monkey bread without letting the dough rise and it turns out just fine. I would recommend dividing the dough into smaller pieces though. The more cinnamon and sugar the better!
