Grease 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan; line with parchment paper. Set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, flour, butter, vanilla, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 17- x 13-inch (43 x 33 cm) rectangle; fit into bottom and up sides of prepared pan, tucking overhang behind pastry on sides. Sprinkle chocolate over bottom; spread filling evenly over top.

Bake in bottom third of 400°F (200°C) oven until filling is set and crust is golden, 25 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on rack. Cut into squares. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; store for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
