Most people know challah — a Jewish egg bread — as a braided loaf. But truth is, it can take on a variety of shapes.

And at Rosh Hashana — which begins this evening — it often is formed into a spiral, which is meant to symbolize the circle and continuity of the Jewish new year.

To make this delicious celebratory bread a little easier, we gave our version of spiral challah a boost thanks to a bit of help from baking powder. And to make it easier to shape and faster to bake we divided the large loaf into mini rolls shaped in muffin tins. The result tastes like challah, but looks like a beautiful popover.

If desired, you can add raisins to the spirals, then drizzle them with honey after they come out of the oven.
