I have had pretty good success with enzyme based oven cleaners. Spray it on, put it in a garbage bag, and close it up for a few days. You should be able to scrub it off after that.

This is my “go to” for getting old, dried on, baked on, burnt on blackness off my pots and pans…
Coat bottom of pot with baking soda. Add enough water to cover baking soda well (should not make a paste – should be very wet).
Heat thoroughly to boiling. Let boil about 5-15 minutes, using a whisk or fork to dislodge black remnants.
When water is reduced to half, remove pot from heat, carefully. Dump dirty water and proceed to rinse using hot water and a gentle brush (do not use brush if pot has non-stick coating). Repeat process if necessary.
Since it is a baking pan, you can do this in the oven.
Preheat oven to 450. Place pan in oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil 3 c.
water. Remove pan from oven and coat bottom with baking soda. FILL pan 3/4 full with boiled water (this may be easier & safer when pan is sitting on oven rack).
Return pan to oven for 30 – 60 minutes, using a whisk or fork every 10 minutes to dislodge any particles. Continue process from here, only use great caution when removing hot pan from oven to prevent sloshing of hot liquid.
Good luck. I hope these work for you.
