<p>I don't have a pumpkin bread recipe memorized, so I can't help with that (I'm not at home and don't have the internet there) but I remember my cream cheese frosting recipe.  There's actually two.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>#1  Someone else's recipe</p>
<p> </p>
<p>     8 oz butter</p>
<p>     8 oz cream cheese</p>
<p>     1 tsp vanilla</p>
<p>     1 pound powdered sugar</p>
<p> </p>
<p>     Mix all together, frost items and eat.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>#2  My recipe (and the tastier one of the two)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>     16 oz cream cheese</p>
<p>     1 tbsp vanilla</p>
<p>     1 pound powdered sugar</p>
<p> </p>
<p>     Mix all together and eat straight from the bowl.  If there's any left, frost the muffins.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>These are approximate measurements- I never measure unless it's a new recipe.  I usually eyeball and modify it to taste.  I hope it helps!</p>

<p><a href="http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/11/pumpkin-cupcakes/" target="_blank">These</a> pumpkin cupcakes are amazing.  They're light and very cupcake like, but still strongly pumpkin flavored.  And the Maple Cream Cheese Frosting is awesome.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If you want more of a muffin texture I'd go with <a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Downeast-Maine-Pumpkin-Bread/Detail.aspx" target="_blank">this recipe</a>.  I usually replace half the oil with applesauce.  It's a big recipe and would make a ton of muffins.  I'd half it unless I was freezing some or baking for a crowd.</p>

If I can replace half the oil with applesauce, do you think I can just replace half the oil with more pumpkin? Would be making these from my own homemade pumpkin puree, so am not limited by can sizes, but I don't have applesauce. I was thinking cooked pumpkin is kind of similar in texture and 'substance' to applesauce.</p>

<p>I don't see why not, but I'm not a baking expert.<br>
