  1. Soak the raisins in the sherry.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, the water and the cinnamon sticks and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it forms a thick syrup.
  4. Add the coconut, stir well, and cook another three minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool; when cooled, remove and discard cinnamon sticks.
  6. Grate the poundcake into a large bowl.
  7. Beat the egg yolks and add them to the pound cake along with the coconut mixture, the raisins and sherry and the ground cinnamon.
  8. Butter a ten inch springform pan.
  9. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  10. Fold them, using a rubber spatula, into the cake mixture, blending well but gently.
  11. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for an hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  12. Cool on a rack before opening the springform pan.
  13. Note: Even the best springform pans leak sometimes, so wrap the bottom with some foil and place a cookie sheet on the oven shelf beneath the shelf on which you bake the cake.
