Easy to bake bread with chives and dried tomatoes

Today I baked an easy bread. Easy means nothing complicated about it. The texture is quite soft and spongy, but it is delicious as it is, maybe with just a little butter it will taste richer.
slice of bread
All you need:400 g strong flour (wheat)
1 cup multigrain flakes (think muesli with different kind of grains)
1 bunch chives, chopped
10 dried tomatoes in oil, roughly cut + 1tablespoon of the tomatoe oil
200 ml water
200 ml plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1+ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast

Stir grains with yoghurt and let sit 1 hour. Mix yeast with sugar and lukewarm water, add flour, salt, multigrain yoghurt and let the machine run for 5 minutes.
Let the dough rise until doubled in size (warm place, covered by clingfilm).
Add the chives and tomatoes, let the machine run 2 times. Don't mix much or you are going to destroy the chives and the tomatoes.
Fill dough into a baking mold, mold covered with parchment paper. Make an even surface by a wet hand (just rinse your hand under the tap) and sprinkle some grain flakes on top of the dough.

Let dough rise again until doubled in size and yes: cover it.  Bake 10 minutes at 220 degree Celsius and 40 minutes at 180 degree Celsius. Check if the bread is done by knocking at the bottom - if it sounds hollow it is fine.
