As a child I was never too thrilled when Grandma Kiwicakes made "Chinese Chews" as I wasn't a fan of raisins or sultanas. Luckily I grew up and it's pretty tasty to me now. How times have changed, I very much doubt a recipe would be called Chinese chews these days, unless it was in fact Chinese. Looking through vintage cookbooks (somewhat of a hobby of mine) I've noticed there quite a number of recipes with highly inappropriate names for our modern times.
Have you got a vintage recipe with a funny name - I'd love to hear about it.
