Decadently Rich Port and Chocolate Christmas Cake

This is the richest, heaviest, moistest, most alcoholic Christmas cake you're likely to find anywhere! It's from Australia's "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine (December 2002). The tablespoon measurements for the spices are correct - this cake is so flavoursome it can take this quantity of spice.
