does cooking something extend the life of it?

for example, my milk expires tomorrow. if i cook german pancakes today, and then save the leftovers, will the leftovers expire tomorrow, or since the milk was cooked into the pancakes before it expired, will i be ok to eat the leftovers for several days beyond the expiration date?

The leftovers will be fine. You just need to use the milk, i.e. drink it or cook it in something.

Milk expires because it's microbial count goes through the roof. When you cook it you will kill off a lot of the microbes, therefore your pancakes will have a pancake expiry date rather than a milk one!!
