Creme au Beurre, Menagere (Butter Cream)

A classic baking basic, butter cream frosting, gets flavored with coffee.

This should be made with an electric beater; it is heavy work by hand. Use pasteurized shell eggs, if desired. And, for a smoother look, dissolve the coffee in a few drops of hot water before adding to other ingredients.
