Preheat the oven to 325°F. Have a 9-by-13-inch ungreased pan at hand.
Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer or hand-held electric mixer.
Add the oil and eggs; beat on low speed for a few minutes until a dough forms (closer to a dough than a cake batter). Press into the pan, spreading it evenly over the bottom and at least halfway up the sides.
Combine the cream cheese and sugar in a separate (or cleaned) bowl of a stand mixer or hand-held electric mixer; beat on medium-low speed for 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low, then add the flour, evaporated milk, vanilla extract and eggs.
Mix until smooth; the batter will be quite thin.
Pour the filling over the crust in the pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and nuts, if desired.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until the fillilng is slightly puffed and set. The cake should not brown.
Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Use a clean, dry and hot knife to cut the cake into 24 equal squares, cleaning the knife between cuts.
