It depends on where you found the recipe.

1. If the recipe was published on a web site such as, you can follow the rules of citing a webpage 

2. If it's your own recipe, you have two options:

a. Upload it to a recipe website, and cite it as a web source.

b. You can also follow the rules of citing an "unpublished source" or manuscript.  

3. If you got the recipe from a friend or family member, you can cite it as personal communication or interview.

Purdue OWL's APA Style Guidelines has guidance and examples on all three citation rules.  See links below to access.
