Cooking time 60mins
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter 9x13-inch pan and flour, tapping out excess.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl, set aside.
Beat eggs and sugar on medium-high until pale and thick, about 4 minutes. With mixer running, add melted butter and oil and beat until evenly combined. Beat in vanilla.
With mixer on low, add flour mixture in 3 additions and milk in 2 additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix just until combined.
Transfer batter to pan and bake until toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely.
Place both kinds of chips in large bowl. Heat cream and salt in a medium sauce pan over high. As soon as mixture begins to boil, pour over chocolate and let stand for 3 minutes. Add vanilla and whisk until melted and smooth. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
In mixer, beat until fluffy and a shade lighter, about 4 minutes. Spread evenly over cake.
