Mix garlic powder and 1 tsp. dried parsley into the melted butter. Pour into an ungreased 8x8 or 9x9 glass baking dish.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and 1 tsp. dried parsley.
Add buttermilk and stir until a thick batter is formed.
Pour batter into baking dish, on top of the butter. Spread evenly. It's okay if some of the butter gets on top of the batter.
Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 9 squares.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. When finished, the top of the bread should be lightly browned.
Allow to cool slightly before eating.
