Heat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate (I use Pyrex). In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, chopped chocolate, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until well blended. Add the eggs and oil and mix until blended. Scrape into the pie plate and spread evenly. Sprinkle the chopped nuts over the top. Bake in the center of the oven until a pick inserted in the center comes out with some gooey pieces clinging to it, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool at least 10 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve hot, warm, or cold.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
