Just tried a doughnut left over night, after I (from previous experience) warmed it for 10 secs in the microwave, bit in the s*d and covered myself, keyboard, prototype, desk, floor, monitor in more Jam at Naplam temperature than you would think possible at a temperature that is just plain too hot.
Because of the high sugar content it is possible for the jam to get much hotter than 100c.
Also the stickiness and density means it clings to skin and does deeper damage than if it were just water which would splash on but run off quickly.
This means that even if the temperature were lower than boiling water it would have much more heat and this would cause more damage.
You were lucky not to get scalded.
I have heard that in prisons inmates fill boiling coffee with loads of sugar so that it can be used as a weapon.

I fear it may be deliberate. At uni, the college I was at[^] had a newsletter that was posted in the lavatories (so you had something to read and, in extremis, emergency toilet roll) affectionately it was called "The Bogsheet" but it's official title was "The Carsehole" after the odd way some southerners pronounce the word "castle".
