Savory Sourdough, Sweet Sourdough

Sourdough with everything topping
Sourdough withe sugar topping
My go-to sourdough bread recipe will yield two loaves, so last time, I gave them each a different topping.

One had the savory, everything bagel topping (poppy and sesame seeds, dried onion, garlic, and salt), and one had the sweet, demerara sugar topping (a coarse, brownish sugar).

Guess which one turned out best?

I would have guessed the savory one was going to be better, but it was sweet one that was the winner here.  The everything sourdough bread was good, but the demerara sugar really balanced out the tangy flavor of the sourdough in a nice way.  I don't think I've ever seen sourdough bread with a sweet topping, but it was quite delicious.
