Perfect bread for cheese platter

Hazelnut, Shallot, Raisin Bread
I used my basic bread recipe:

500g bread flour (I mixed 150g German Multi-Grain with 350g Strong White bread flour)
10g fresh yeast (or 2 teaspoons of dried yeast)
1 tsp salt
300-350ml water

2/3 cup shallots (or onions) sliced
2/3 cup crushed hazelnuts
1/3 cup raisins (I accidentally added 2/3 cup and it was very nice)

Heat a little butter and oil in frying pan, add shallots/onions and fry till soft and brown.
Add hazelnuts and fry for another minute.
Add raisins and heat for another 30 seconds.

Add mixture to bread dough. Knead.

Let rise, shape into loaf (or baguettes), let rise again. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
