This is the only recipe I could find ----it's vegan but I think can turn into raw???
1. use coconut oil
2. use nut flour/ pulp ?
3. use nut milk
4. USE LECITHIN REPLACING BAKING POWDER
here's is the recipe
Dairy-Free Egg-Free Gingerbread Cake (Vegan)
This recipe is has been altered slightly, but it seems it may have originated from Imagine Foods. Enjoy this cake warm with a scoop of vanilla non-dairy ice cream
Yields: 9 servings

I don't think you need to worry about replacing the baking powder. It's just a raising agent.
For the cake, maybe replace the flour with ground nuts sweetened and bound with dates or figs. You could blend in a bit of coconut oil for moisture, if you think it's needed. Add the sweet spices and the vanilla and press into a small cake pan.
When adding the spices, start with half the amount and taste. I find that spices are much more pronounced in raw dishes and sometimes the full amount can be overpowering.
I know you didn't ask for cookies, but thought this might give an idea or two...
2 cups ground oat groats (she didn't soak)
1 cup cashew "flour" (cashews ground in a coffee grinder, no soaking)
1/4 cup agave
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tsp. ginger
6 dates, 1 cup raisins--soaked and pureed
--roll out dough on a non-stick surface (I used wax paper)
--use cookie cutters for shapes, then dehydrate until "hard"
author notes: The ginger cookies are also yummy if you substitute ground pecans for the cashews ( I found that out today, when I ran out of cashews!)
