Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars on medium speed. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Reduce speed to low then add cake flour, bread flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and chocolate. Mix ingredients until well combined. Using a 2-ounce scoop, scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
