How can I make those Dutch pannekoek, specially those salty ones that have cheese and mushrooms? Every time I try, I end up burning those "toppings".

You pour in the batter, wait for the underside to be cooked (some brown patches), flip it, then put cheese on the (browned) top. With spek (bacon), you don't need to do this, you can just put the spek into the pan, pour batter over it, and proceed as normal. Dutch pancakes are fairly thin, so they don't take very long to cook. Apple pieces won't burn either, so you can put those in first (I hate those, they will make your pancake break!).

After pouring in the batter, you often need to tilt the pan to get good coverage of the pan. (if you just poured it in and let it flow on its own, you'll end up with too thick of a pannekoek, unless you make the batter really thin, which gives you other problems later) – Joe Oct 2 '13 at 13:23
@Joe: Absolutely! I assumed the OP would get that... – Cerberus Oct 2 '13 at 16:22
It sounds like the original poster had some experience ... but just in case someone else stumbled upon this question, I thought it'd be good to mention. – Joe Oct 2 '13 at 21:24
@Joe: Sure, it can't hurt! – Cerberus Oct 2 '13 at 22:22
And just an addition - the OP asked specifically about mushrooms. Like all other things that you could put in a stir fry, it can go in at the same time you would put the bacon in. – Erik P. Oct 6 '13 at 2:01
