 Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl, set aside.
 Combine the eggs and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until the
 mixture is very thick
 and forms ribbons when you lift the beaters away from the batter. 
 Add the vanilla and blend lightly. Add the melted chocolate and mix lightly. 
 Gently fold the flour mixture into the chocolate batter with a spatula. Fold
 in the chocolate chips
 and nuts..Spread batter in greased pan.
 Bake for 35 to 40 minute, when done, a cake tester in the center will have a
 little batter clinging
 to it.. Do not over bake.  Cool in pan.
