Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-muffin pan with paper liners.

Mix the sugar with flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into the dry and beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes. Add boiling water and beat for another 2 minutes.

Scoop batter into prepared pan. Place 1/2 to 1 teaspoon jam into the center of each cupcake. Bake for 25 minutes or until done when tested with a toothpick. Let cupcakes cool on a wire rack. When completely cool, dust the cupcakes with confectioner's sugar, if desired.
