Tell me folks what's the difference betwix a formula and a recipe?
I saw Lant ask for the recipe for soap making.
Should it be a recipe or formula, now I don't know of any formulas for making cakes, unless that is for Rock Cakes. What say you folks.

They are the same but different

They are interchangeable however a formula has more broad definitions like for math, science etc.
