Method: 

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 12 muffin-tin cups with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, combine flours, cocoa powder, egg-replacer, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat oil with maple syrup on medium speed for 1 minute. Add vanilla and beat until well combined. On low speed, alternately beat in flour mixture and soy milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat in the apple cider vinegar.

Spoon a scoop of batter into each muffin cup. Spoon 1 teaspoon raspberry jam into the center of each cup. Spoon remaining batter evenly over raspberry jam.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until done when tested with a toothpick. Turn cupcakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

If desired, lightly spread some fruit sweetened raspberry jam over the tops of the cupcakes prior to serving.
