Preheat oven to moderate (350°F.).
Sift together one cup of the flour and the baking powder. Stir in one-third cup brown sugar. Cut in the butter, using a pastry blender or two knives, until well blended. The mixture should appear dry.
Pat evenly into a shallow pan (12 × 8 × 2 inches). Bake for ten minutes. Remove from oven.
Blend remaining one-quarter cup brown sugar with remaining three tablespoons flour. Beat the eggs and add to them the syrup, sugar-flour mixture, the salt and vanilla. Mix well.
Pour over the partially baked mixture. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Return to the oven and bake for twenty-five to thirty minutes longer. Cut into bars while warm.
